Just before its scheduled public release next week, Apple has released the seventh iOS 9.3 pre-release beta version intended for public beta testers and developers. And as found on their new iOS version, features available include Touch ID- and password-protected items in the Notes app, expanded 3D Touch options on apps for Settings and others, and new CarPlay features. This iOS version also includes a new Night Shift mode that automatically changes the display temperature on the device.
Last week, Apple released its Beta 6 version of the iOS update. But comparing it with the new changes incorporated on this Beta 7 version, it is relatively small and minor. Along with these changes, Apple has also incorporated upgrades for its Health and Activity apps. There is also an updated Apple Watch fitness data panels available on the dashboard that now comes with a more detailed view for Workouts, among other changes.
The new upgrades to iOS now include Wi-Fi Calling support for iPhones under Verizon’s network. There is now also a new built-in News app with enhancements to how it can be used. The upgrade also no longer requires playlist songs to be added to My Music on the Apple Music app. Apple has also updated its iCloud for iBooks app in the sense that PDF syncing between iOS devices is now enabled. The new iOS also allows multiple Apple Watches to be paired with just one iPhone.
As of this writing, the iOS 9.3 update is available for developers and public beta testers. It comes with a download of 66.1 MB.
