    Apple today seeded a minor 1.1 update for the iOS 9.3 beta that was provided to developers earlier this week to fix a few critical bugs that needed to be immediately addressed.

    The iOS 9.3 Beta 1.1, build 13E5181f, is available as an over-the-air update and through the Apple Developer Center.

    According to Apple's release notes, the iOS 9.3 1.1 beta fixes an installation issue that developers encountered when trying to install the first iOS 9.3 beta. On some devices, updating to iOS 9.3 failed, causing the update to freeze at the Apple logo. We at MacRumors encountered this installation issue on an iPad mini 2, with multiple failures preventing the beta from being installed.

    The update also fixed an issue with apps that used compass data on devices that did not include a motion coprocessor. On these devices, the locationd service would continually crash for as long as the compass request continued.

    As a major .1 update to the iOS 9 operating system, iOS 9.3 introduces quite a few new features. There's a new Night Shift mode that cuts down on the amount of blue light iOS users are exposed to in the evening hours by automatically shifting the iPhone or iPad display to a warmer (yellower) color spectrum, and there are several new features designed to improve the iPad for Education program.

    Several apps and features are also being updated, including Health, Notes, CarPlay, and ore, plus there are new Quick Actions for Weather, Settings, Compass, Health, App Store, and iTunes Store.

    iOS 9.3 is expected to be released to the public in the spring, so it is likely to see several additional updates over the beta testing period.

    "fixes an installation issue that developers encountered when trying to install the first iOS 9.3 beta.",

    You would only see this update if you didn't install the first beta successfully or at all.

    EDIT: Ok guys, I might have made a mistake in what I said above. Apologies.

    Better than a simple point increase of a version number?

    It says it also fixes "The update also fixed an issue with apps that used compass data on devices that did not include a motion coprocessor." so, would that not do it. The build posted on the dev site is different than the 9.3 I have currently.

    Well this fixed the issue with Apple Pencil too. It was not working in "non pencil updated apps". Works across the system right again.

    hmmm... thanks! I just checked and indeed it is available on my iPad. Don't see it on the iphone though. I got my phone replaced due to a fried circuit board earlier this week. May need to enroll it in the the program again. Thanks for the heads up though!

    Update: Indeed the beta profile was not installed. Just re-installed and now am downloading the beta.

    I'm seeing this update available OTA on my iPad Air 2 but got nothing showing my iPhone 6S which tells me iOS 9.3 is up to date - both are currently on the developer 9.3 beta 1 (build 13E5181d).

    Update: As a few others have mentioned I deleted and reinstalled the beta profile from the Apple Developer website and my 6S now sees the OTA update...

    There is a new profile to download on the DEV site. I wonder if that is not optional for OTA updates now.

    I'm not sure if you need the config profile to get every 9.3 beta update OTA, or if once you have a 9.3 beta installed you can get OTA updates without the config profile.

    I have the profile installed from the dev site on my iPhone. No OTA yet. iPad Air 2 has been updated and has the same profile.

    Just for reference, I had the first beta 1 installed as well as the new profile, and was immediately able to see 1.1 OTA and install it. Also, I had no issues installing beta 1 back on (Tuesday? forgot when it was released but you get the point :))

    The original beta installed great! Now I can't get past the Apple logo - it reboots after 2 minutes of trying to boot up! (IPad Air 2)

    OK, so I'm having this issue when updating to 9.3b1 (sitting at the Apple logo, going nowhere fast). How did you recover? Clearly an OTA update to 9.3b1.1 isn't going to work, and I don't have a developer account. :-(

    Thanks!
