Apple sending out iOS 9.3 beta 1 to public beta testers via an OTA update
Apple's iOS 9.3 build will have some interesting features as we've been discussing. 3D Touch gets added to the rest of Apple's first-party apps like Settings, Health, Stocks, Weather, App Store, and Compass. Night Shift will help you sleep better at night by making the screen cooler once the sun goes down. Notes gives you a secure place to keep your...well, notes, and the Apple News app is improved. In addition, someone who owns multiple Apple Watches can pair them all to one iPhone with Auto Switch.

Another new feature coming in iOS 9.3 allows multiple students in different classes to each use the same Apple iPad. Using multiple accounts, None of the students will have to worry about the others seeing their personal information. The update is in the process of being sent to public iOS beta testers via an OTA update.

If you're interested in becoming a public iOS beta tester, click on the sourcelink. Once you sign up, you will be able to get new features on your iPhone or iPad before the majority of the public has a chance to use them. While not the final build, and thus open to bugs, lags and gremlins, there are usually a few new features that you should enjoy testing. In addition, Apple gets to see your feedback about the iOS beta you're testing via a feedback app that all public iOS beta testers get to use.

Congratulations, by the way, you're one of the very, very few lucky ones

With iOS we get undates all the time but truth be told, those updates only add features android or touchwiz have had for years. Besides bug fixes and stability improvements I don't think android is lacking any bring important with updates.

Enjoying OS level app permissions yet? what about doze? maybe fingerprint support for Android Pay? Or Google's "NEW" implementation of HomeKit - basically things iOS users already enjoy - you're going to get with marshmelow....

You know, I tried burying the hatchet, but this "android had it for years" is getting really old when every update on Android adds things that were available on Apple Devices for years... Give it a rest - you only starting flamewars... To the rest of PA members - dont flame me for what I posted, I just wanted to show this one that it's a two way street - and I'm tired of one sided arguments...

So true. Even night shift I don't recall having seen it on android, I mean sure it exist through a third party app and then it can be enabled (unlike iOS) but I have never seen it inside android OS but itself. Never seen it in the settings section in an android phone so which android phone actually has that built-in??
