    Apple today released the second beta of an upcoming iOS 9.3 update for public beta testers, just a few days after seeding the second iOS 9.3 beta to developers. iOS 9.3's second public beta comes a week after Apple released iOS 9.2.1, a minor update, to the public.

    Beta testers who have signed up for Apple's beta testing program will receive the second 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.

    Today's second beta includes support for a Night Shift toggle in the Control Center on iOS devices. Night Shift is denoted by a new eye-shaped icon in between the icons for the timer and the calculator on the iPhone. Tapping on the icon brings up options to turn the feature on or disable it until the next day.


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

    not sure why the toggle is bundled in with the "app" section of Control Center as opposed to the "settings" section. Doesn't make much sense

    Flashlight isn't an app either? It's a toggle, isn't it?

    The eye-shaped icon contains a moon shape inside of it. Can't forget/leave off that detail.

    i guess that's true but it seems like more of a utility app (like calculator) than a setting so i htink flashlight fits more on the bottom than Night mode does

    You're right but there really isn't room on the top row for another icon which is probably why it was put below.

    what I'd really appreciate as a feature in future iOS releases would be a customisable Control Centre, i.e. being able to have the settings you use the most right there with a swipe up...

    Mark Gurman claims this was in internal 9.3 testing at Apple so I wouldn't be surprised if we see it in iOS 10.

    It's certainly not an OS control, and you can think of it as an app that performs its own function as it's certainly much more aligned with that than an OS setting/option which is what Night Shift does and what the other OS controls at the top do.

    That is more likely what's behind it if anything.

    The worst of all, IMO is not the position, is the icon itself... I would without doubt prefer the lampshade icon shown on Canadian iOS 9.3 preview web page. The radius of the bottom icons on CC have changed as well.. looks Wierdo!

    Maybe they realized five on each of the two rows makes MUCH more sense than four on one row & six on the other??

    It's really tempting to go back to public beta besides besides 9.2 feels like beta anyway. :D

    6 Plus is getting bad performance on beta 2... on beta 1 it was super smooth, iOS 8 like... both CC, scrolling and multitasking worked flawlessly... But people are saying that the performance got worse in this beta!

    I'm not going to update from beta 1...

    Update wisely!
