Apple Releases iOS 9.3 Beta 6 to Devs and Public for Testing, Likely One of Final Builds

In as little as 6 days, Apple is back in the beta game and has begun to push out the sixth build of iOS 9.3 to developers and public beta testers for trying out. And since we’re so close, this could very well be the final (if not one of the final) betas we’ll see of iOS 9.3 before the official release which is expected to be during Apple’s upcoming keynote supposedly scheduled for March 21st.


So far, we’ve seen a lot of new features found in iOS 9.3, like the new Night Shift toggle, iOS Education enhancements, new 3D Touch shortcuts, and more. Here’s a rundown of all of them:

  • Night Shift mode to adjust colors based on time of day and location of device
  • Password protecting (with Touch ID support) notes in the Notes app
  • Ability to jump to corresponding apps from Apple Pay and passes in Wallet app
  • iPhone Landscape support + more personalization in the News app
  • New 3D Touch shortcuts from Home screen for Weather, Settings, Compass, Health, App Store, iTunes Store
  • Siri Support for Hebrew, Finish, and Malay (not available yet on the Apple Watch)
  • Feedback app (in the beta only)
  • Choose to Duplicate a Live Photo as a Still Photo when exporting from Photos app
  • Taptic Feedback when accessing multitasking via 3D Touch
  • Activity app data in the Health app
  • New Workout data section in the Apple Watch Activity app
  • iOS Education upgrades
  • Enhanced Apple Music support in CarPlay
  • iCloud for iBooks now syncs PDFs and more
  • New ‘Duplicate’ action in Photos
  • Verizon Wi-Fi Calling
  • Fixed Control Center icons in landscape
  • Apple News settings in Sweden, possibly other countries (although no app)
  • New star icons next to track numbers in Music


In beta 5, we saw the return of Apple Pencil navigation support along with a simplified Night Shift toggle in Control Center. So far, beta 6 hasn’t proven to feature anything new, but we’ll update this post if we find anything.
