iOS 9.3 beta 1 was released to developers on Monday. It was launched in addition to several new betas for Apple’s other platforms including tvOS, OS X and watchOSOddly enough, as 9to5Mac noted on the launch, iOS 9.3 beta 1 is actually available as a beta at the same time as another early release. iOS 9.2.1 is also being tested right now, which means developers are going to have to pick which one they want to test on devices.


According to 9to5Mac, iOS 9.3 beta 1 allows “iPhones to pair with multiple Apple Watches for the first time.” The update also include support for Hebrew in Siri, Apple Configurator 2.2 beta and Xcode 7.3 beta. iOS 9.3 beta 1 also adds support for multiple users on iPads, which Apple says will be particularly useful for students on its Education page.

Apple also launched OS X El Capitan 10.11.4 beta 1, tvOS 9.2 beta 1 and watchOS 2.2 beta 1. Like iOS 9.3 and iOS 9.2.1, Apple seems to be testing two versions of El Capitan at the first time, as OS X 10.11.3 is also still in beta. No word yet on what’s new on those platforms, but we’ll keep you abreast of the interesting parts as they bubble up.
