Apple seeded the second beta of iOS 9.3 to developers on Monday, bringing the Night Shift toggle to the iOS Control Center, previously seen on Apple Canada’s iOS 9.3 preview page.
The second beta of iOS 9.3 is available as an over-the-air update for iOS devices already runing iOS 9.2, and should also soon be available through the Apple Developer Center.
Last week, an eagle-eyed user spotted a toggle button for iOS 9.3’s new Night Shift feature in the Control Center in a photo on Apple’s Canadian website. While that photo was not available on the U.S. site, today’s new beta seed does indeed bring the feature to the iPad and the iPhone.
Other features included in iOS 9.3 are:
Apple Watch: Using iOS 9.3 and watchOS 2.2 allow an iPhone to pair with more than one Apple Watch. Both devices require the latest beta updates. with AppleWatches running watchOS 2.2 and the iPhones running iOS 9.3.
Night Shift: iOS 9.3 reduces blue light at night, much like f.lux does on a Mac.
Notes: The app is now password protected, and includes new features for sorting by date created, date modified, or alphabetically.
Apple News: Improved News algorithms offer more tailored articles in the “For You” section. It also includes a new landscape mode and in-line video playback.
Health: A new interface makes it easier to see move, exercise, and stand data. A new menu in certain categories helps users to discover apps that can be used to track health data.
CarPlay: CarPlay includes “New” and “For You” sections in Apple Music, and a “Nearby” feature in Maps helps users discover the best local restaurants, coffee shops, and more.
Education: Shared iPads for students, a new Classroom app, and an AppleSchool Manager.
Wi-Fi Assist: iOS 9.3 offers a counter informing users with Wi-Fi Assist installed how much cellular data they’ve used.
