    Please report bugs to (a developer account is not required to do this).

    iOS 9.3 beta 4

    Bugs (new to beta 4):

    • When deleting an app, the circular "x" is now sometimes square
    • Apple Watch notifications broken (to watchOS 2.1)
      • Stock apps deliver simultaneous notifications to phone/watch, instead of watch only
      • 3rd Party apps do not deliver notifications at all
    • Cannot play embedded videos on iPhone 6s Plus/iPad Air (gives error
    • CC in Siri and Cellular Data -> apps list scrolling have stutter
    • Night Shift bug - all settings resetted after turn it on at CC while low power mode is on.
      Turn on low power mode and then turn on night shift in CC. You'll see the personal settings are gone back to default.
    • Saving any website to Notes app with safari Notes share button results duplicated note when searching for it with spotlight. -> Video
    • If you open the compass while talking on the iPhone, you'll see the screen tearing.
    • If you choose the Late Night EQ Mode while playing music; the music stops and starts again. -> Video
    • Spotlight Searchbar Binding on Statusbar -> Video
    • Search any location on with Safari. After that scroll the map and pinch-in zoom. Safari freezes.
    • Sometimes the Animations are still disappearing. -> Video
    • Turning off the predictive text in iMessages results in being unable to enable it again. Workaround is to re-enable it in Settings > General > Keyboard.
    • Activating Siri on WiFi results in no recognition. LTE however works fine.
    • Search Hotspot on Settings, touch second result after that touch first result and touch Back button. Search box disappearing and result screen merged with statusbar. -> Video
    • Safari Speak Selection; it doesn't continue where it left off. It starts reading from the beginning all the times. Pause button working like Stop button.
    • Call Siri (you can cancel the voice recognition if you want, we don't need it).Pull up control center and immediatly try to pull it down. Depending on how hard you pulled it, it can take a good 3 seconds to pull it down again.
    • New Night Shift Icon
    • Popular songs marked with stars now at album view instead of iTunes-like bars
    • Activating Low Power mode disables Night Shift if it's activated
    • Buttons in PiP window remain constant sized regardless of the window's scale. Earlier they used to get smaller and harder to tap as we pinched.
    • App Store download over cellular restrictions lifted (used to be 100 mb)

    Bug Fixes:
    • Status Bar clock bug fixed
    • Tapping news articles in the Proactive page now works
    • Does not re-lock after unlocking via Touch-ID
    • iPad Air 2 doesn't go black for a second when swiping through fullscreen apps with multitasking gestures.
    • Date & Time can no longer be set to anything earlier than Januray 1, 2001.
    • Cannot verify iCloud ID after iCloud Restore is fixed

    The build number ending in a letter usually means release candidate doesn't it?

    It seems a bit quicker, having used it for all of 5 minutes on iPhone 6 Plus. Noticed it launching Calendar and Notes.

    Ew. I detest the new Night Shift icon.


    I would want that ugly lamp instead.

    Did you have any issues with the Health app crashing? If so, is that fixed?

    Never had crashing problems with it. But there is a new bug that I've just noticed, where the min and max values on the right edge have a too small font sometimes, almost not readable.

    I don't know if I like this new one... but I guess it's better than the previous.
    But I'll always prefer this one:

    Super smooth on my iPhone 6 and iPad Air 2. The responsiveness of CC when swiping up is back, beta 3 removed it even though the animation was smooth.

    This will be a great release.

    Fitness / sports guys and gals: Could you please check if the Activity app is rewarding Achievement medals, specially ones that you have already earned once or more than once before?

    I have stopped receiving almost all Achievements since the last couple of updates over the last 2 weeks, even though meeting the goals convincingly every day.

    iPhone 6s Plus, watchOS 2.1, iOS 9.3 beta 3 (so far). Many thanks!

    Guys, can you check whether navigating back with the back gesture is smooth? Since iOS 9, I noticed often stutter animations when swiping back a little slower on mail app, messages app and all other apps using navigation controller and enabled swipe back gesture.

    Me, too

    The news in the left spotlight view can be opened in Safari again, so that's fixed too.
    Seems pretty fast overall on my 6s Plus. I wonder when they fix the crazy 3D Touch stuttering in landscape. That's the only thing that really annoys me now.
