Apple sends out second beta for iOS 9.3

Apple sends out second beta for iOS 9.3
Earlier this month, Apple sent out iOS 9.3, beta 1. This includes a change to Wi-Fi Assist that allows users to see how much data they consumed using the feature. Now, iOS 9.3 beta 2 has been sent out. With a build number of 13E5191d, the biggest addition is a button in the Control Center that makes it easy to turn on Night Shift.

Night Shift is one of a number of additions coming to iOS 9.3. As the sun goes down in your area, Night Shift has the screen move toward warmer colors to prevent your eyes from straining. The bottom line is that you are supposed to get a better night of sleep without your eyes being subjected to so much blue light. The sunset for each iPhone user is computed automatically using the native clock and geolocation data.

Other features coming with iOS 9.3 include an improvement to Notes that makes it more secure. Once iOS 9.3 is disseminated, it will allow users to type important personal information in Notes. These messages will only be accessible with a fingerprint scan using Touch ID, or by typing in a password. Another new feature will allow those owning multiple Apple Watches to pair them all on the same iPhone.

Apple recently sent out iOS 9.2.1 which was basically a maintenance update that included security updates and bug fixes. But the real excitement is being reserved for iOS 9.3.

Get rid of airplane mode and add low battery mode. One thing I like about android toggles - you can customize it.

Why get rid of airplane mode, why can't they co-exist? For one thing airplane mode is an industry standard, and may be necessary for use on a plane.

Instead they should get rid of the clock option and put low power mode. From there, all they have to do is to use the lock screen time indicator and make it as a scortcut. For example: double tapping on the time indicator would act as a scortcut to bring you to the timer app itself (without a passcode as before) OR you could just swipe up on the time indicator and that would open the timer app :) How about that Apple?
