    Apple today released the first beta of an upcoming iOS 9.3 update for public beta testers, just a few days after seeding the iOS 9.3 beta to developers. iOS 9.3 is available to public beta testers alongside iOS 9.2.1, a minor update that is also in testing.

    Beta testers who have signed up for Apple's beta testing program will receive the iOS 9.3 update over-the-air after installing the proper certificate on their iOS device.

    Those who want to be a part of Apple's beta testing program can sign up to participate through the beta testing website, which gives users access to both iOS and OS X betas.

    iOS 9.3 is a major update to the iOS 9 operating system, introducing a long list of new features and improvements. iOS 9.3's biggest new feature is Night Shift mode, which is designed to automatically cut down on the amount of blue light an iOS user is exposed to at night by shifting to more yellow tones for the iPhone or iPad's display. With iOS 9.3, there's a number of changes for educational users, and the iPhone is now able to pair with multiple Apple Watches.

    The update also includes new 3D Touch Quick Actions for stock apps like Weather, Settings, Compass, Health, App Store, and iTunes Store, plus it introduces password protection for individual notes in the Notes app. News in iOS 9.3 includes in-line video playback, landscape mode on the iPhone, and more personalization, while the Health app introduces a new Apple Watch-style "Activity" interface.

    A full list of changes in iOS 9.3 can be found in our "What's New" post. iOS 9.3 will be launching this spring.

    I've been using Night Shift for the past couple of days and I think its a really great feature. I'm not sure yet if its helping me sleep though.

    It's just as simple as removing the profile and/or just restoring the phone to the current iOS version. Just keep a backup copy of your phone on the older version of iOS.

    Im staying away from this for a few builds. I installed DP 1 on my device and for whatever reason my 6s did not like it. Bunch of lag and unresponsiveness, even after indexing was complete. Went back to 9.2 and there was an immediate difference. But thats what you get for Betas.

    Right?!
    I was just thinking "if that seems remotely difficult to you.... for sure, stay away from beta software!" =P

    1. Delete the configuration profile that came with the app.
      1. Go to Settings > General > Profile, tap on the app's configuration profile.
      2. Then tap Delete Profile. If asked, enter your device passcode, then tap Delete.

    If you don't know how to remove the Beta maybe you should pass on installing it. Its quite simple too remove from any iOS device bar the Apple Watch (which cant be downgraded)

    Pulling down on the home screen to search + app suggestions is so smooth now on my 6s plus.

    Does anybody know if there are new wallpapers? Thats the only reason I would've installed the beta. I love stock wallpapers. Unfortunately iOS 9 introduced some pretty ugly (wayyyyy too much black in those planet wallpapers) wallpapers.
