iOS 9.3 beta 1 released to public testers, tons of features included

by Todd Haselton | January 14, 2016January 14, 2016 10:23 am PDT

Apple released a bunch of new software earlier this week, including the latest betas for OS X, watchOS, tvOS and iOS. Several of those are now available for public beta testers, including iOS 9.3 beta 1. Unlike some smaller releases, iOS 9.3 beta 1 includes a lot of new features that you might want to test early.

That includes Night Shift, which allows you to cut out some of the blue light in darker environments, making it easier on your eyes to read the screen in places like a dark bedroom. Quick Actions is also included, which basically just adds 3D Touch to some of Apple’s apps such as Compass, Health, Weather and Settings. CarPlay has been revamped with new Apple Music and “Nearby” options, Health shows data from third-party apps, and Apple News and Notes also got a few improvements.

You can read and see all of the changes in our iOS 9.3 beta 1 hands-on from earlier this week. Public beta testers should find the update available through the settings menu now.
