iOS 9.3 Beta Preview

iOS 9.3 Preview

iOS 9.3

Today we have the opportunity to see an insight to what Apple is working on for their next major iOS update release, iOS 9.3. From the looks of it, we’ll be getting a large number of bug fixes but also a few new features. Let’s take a look at them.

A better experience every day. And night.
This latest iOS release adds numerous innovations to the world’s most advanced mobile operating system. There are improvements to a wide range of apps, along with great new additions to CarPlay. iOS 9.3 may even help you get a good night’s sleep. And you’ll find a preview of new features that will make using iPad in schools easier and better for students and admins.

[From Apple.com]

Night Shift

The first main new “feature” that Apple is touting on their website is iOS 9.3’s new feature to make colors “warmer” after sunset. According to Apple (and many studies), the blue light emitted by mobile devices and computers can affect the body’s ability to get a good night’s sleep. This is very similar to an app already available for Mac called f.lux.

Notes + Passcode

While many people have wanted this for a long time, it’s better late than never. Apple will allow users to passcode lock notes on iOS 9.3. Users will be able to unlock their notes via either their fingerprint or a “Notes Password”. Still hoping for a way to password protect photo albums, but I guess we’ll have to wait a little longer for that…

More Personalized News

Apple News will be more “personalized”. Not too much information on this is available for now, but this should be good for anyone who is an avid user of Apple News.


It will be easier to find apps compatible with the Health app. On top of this, you will be able to see more on your Health Dashboard.


In iOS 9.3, there are new CarPlay features being added. You’ll find hand picked music by experts and other music tailored towards your music likings.

Education Preview

There will be new ways to use the iPad in the classroom using iOS 9.3. Not too much more information has been divulged about this yet.


iOS 9.3 Predictions/Thoughts

While we might not see iOS 9.3 for a little while, the features that Apple has shown give me hope that iOS 9.3 will be a success. If the bugs can be smoothed out and the features implemented correctly, iOS 9.3 could be the best update to iOS 9 that we’ve seen thus far. Stay tuned for more information! Apple has a page about iOS 9.3 as well.

Android Wear for iOS

Android Wear Comes to iOS

Today, Google announced that Android wear will now be compatible with iPhone 5 and newer running iOS 8.2 and above. On top of this, and official Android wear app will be hitting the App Store worldwide today [Direct Link]. Android Wear for iPhone will have quite a few features that Android users will be pretty familiar with which include but are not limited to: custom watch faces, notifications, Google Now and voice searches, and of course fitness. It will have support for apps like Google’s Weather and Translate, however iOS apps are not supported, at least with this release.

Here’s a video from The Verge with some more information on it:

Android Wear by Google Inc. iTunes App Store Description:

The Android Wear app connects your iPhone to your Android Wear watch. Once connected you’ll receive notifications from all your iPhone apps, right on your wrist, as well as timely information from Google Now (like traffic alerts, weather and flight status). You can also use the Android Wear app to configure your wearable device, including which notifications appear on your watch.

iOS 9

New Features in iOS 9

WWDC 2015 just wrapped up recently so we thought we’d break down all of the new features of iOS 9. Here they are in no particular order:

Keyboard Changes: Finally, all letters on the keyboard are changed to uppercase if you press the caps button, and lowercase if the caps button is not pressed. This will make it a lot easier for people to type when they know if they’re in caps mode or not.

iCloud Drive: iCloud Drive can now be enabled inside of the settings application. This will allow you to see everything in you iCloud Drive account.

Siri: Siri has an all new, super clean look! (Similar to that of the Apple Watch).

Notes: Apple has updated the Notes app and it includes better image support and a new sketching option. It’s got tons of new features and we think you’ll be using it a lot more with iOS 9.

Settings Search: You can now search anything in settings using the search bar at the top of it.

Contacts: Contacts are now stored in the Proactive menu by swiping right, rather than in the app switcher.

Side Switch: On iPhone you can now use the side switcher to mute the phone as usual, or to lock rotation.

Passcode: By default, if you’d like to set a new passcode, it will now prompt you for a 6 digit passcode rather than a 4 digit one. However, you can still change that and set a 4 digit one instead if you’d rather have that.

Find My Friends/Find My iPhone: These apps are now built-in and not 3rd party. You can also view Find My Friends via a Notification Center Widget.

Battery: Oh boy, there’s a lot to write for this one. Using the proximity sensor and ambient light sensors, the iPhone can now sense if it’s face down. If, say, it’s face down on a table and you receive a notification, the screen will not turn on, so it will waste less battery. Other enhancements include the fact that you’ll be able to get about 1 extra hour of usage on your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus just from having iOS 9. On top of that, you can enable Low Power Mode to get up to 3 extra hours of battery life. In Low Power Mode, Mail is fetched manually, brightness and motion are reduced, network speeds may be reduced, and other things are lowered in the background to conserve even more battery.

Battery Settings: There’s a new section in the Settings app that is completely dedicated to battery. In this section, you can turn on the Low Power Mode, however you can also view which apps use the most or least amount of battery. Also, in Notification Center, you can now view the iOS device battery left as well as your Apple Watch battery power.
