iOS 9.3 beta 3 now out, support for Verizon Wi-Fi calling is the biggest new feature
We first got hold of the first iOS 9.3 beta roughly a month ago, when Apple introduced Night Shift, new 3D Touch shortcuts, and Touch ID support for Notes, among other new features. Subsequently, a brand new Control Center shortcut for Night Shift arrived with the second beta of iOS 9.3 roughly two weeks ago. Although we expect iOS 9.3 to be released soon (After the rumored March event, probably?), the minor beta releases continue to hit those participating the public beta program.

That's right, iOS 9.3 beta 3 is here. Sadly, there are no major new features on board, though we never expected anything groundbreaking in such a release. Here's the changelog:

  • Verizon Wi-Fi Calling
  • Fixed Control Center icons in landscape
  • Apple News settings in Sweden, possibly other countries (although no app)
  • Tweaked Night Shift explainer in Control Center (it now reads "From Sunset to Sunrise", previously was "From 22:00 to 08:00")
  • Tweaked Lock/Unlock toggle in Notes outside of the share sheet

Of course, the newly scored Verizon Wi-Fi calling is undoubtedly the biggest new feature. As a refresher, iOS already supports Wi-Fi Calling for the rest of the major US carriers—T-Mobile, Sprint, and AT&T. Well, Big Red might be a bit late for the party, but at least it's there! 

We will get back to you if any other feature pops up.
