Apple issues second beta of iOS 9.3.2, restores Night Shift in Low Power Mode

Members of Apple's registered developer program can now get their hands on a second pre-release beta of iOS 9.3.2, a forthcoming maintenance and security update for iPhone and iPad that also restores the ability to use Night Shift while in Low Power Mode. New betas of watchOS 2.2.1 and OS X El Capitan 10.11.5 are also available.




Aside from the tweak to Night Shift, no major changes are expected in iOS 9.3.2, as Apple is likely to hold off on significant new additions to the platform until iOS 10 is likely announced at the Worldwide Developers Conference in June. The new build is identified as 13F61.

The first beta of iOS 9.3.2 was supplied to developers two weeks ago. A public release of the beta arrived a day later.

The last publicly released iOS update was iOS 9.3.1, issued in late March to fix a Web link crashing bug.

New betas of watchOS 2.2.1 (build 13V420) and OS X El Capitan 10.11.5 (build 15F24b) are also available from Apple's developer portal.

WWDC 2016 will start on June 13, likely with a keynote presentation to unveil iOS 10, OS X 10.11 (which could be rebranded as macOS), as well as future updates for Apple TV and Apple Watch.

    Nice to see them returning Night Shift to Low Power Mode, as it was a weird last minute change from the betas. Hope the WatchOS beta fixes the issues I've been having since the latest update. It's running worse than the first 2.0 beta, with frequent freeze-ups, locking while still on my wrist, lagging horribly when switching apps and battery life has decreased at least 20% compared to the previous public release.

    Good move with Night Shift, since the phone and the user are often in "low power mode" at the same time.

    Unless they are revealing El Capitan for a second time, I suspect you are right.
