Apple releases seventh iOS 9.3 beta to developers and public beta testers

in iPhone edited March 2016
Continuing a weekly rollout of iOS 9.3 beta builds, Apple on Monday seeded the seventh version of its forthcoming mobile operating system with Night Shift mode, secure Notes and more to developers and public testers.

Today's release of beta builds 13E5233a and 13E5234a comes exactly one week after the sixth version of iOS 9.3 was pushed out in early March, bringing minor changes and bug fixes ahead of an expected issue date sometime in spring.

When it launches, iOS 9.3 will provide iPhone and iPad users with a bevy of new features including Night Shift for reduced eye strain, a Touch ID-secured version of Notes, additional 3D Touch Quick Actions and various improvements to existing first-party apps and services.

Apple is also looking to build out specialized offerings for schools and enterprise with the upcoming iOS release. For example, the Classroom app and supporting ecosystem for iPad offers teachers and school administrators granular control over software distribution, per-student device management and remote monitoring.

Developers and those taking part in the public beta program can download the latest software via Apple's developer portal or on their test device.

    So what happened with the "gradual" Night Shift mode? Now you set a start and end time and boom. Sudden transition.

    No mention of a fix for the GameCenter bug.  This makes it impossible for people to play each other and is hurting revenue of game developers.
