Apple releases iOS 9.3

Apple iOS 9.3 update brings Night Shift feature
Apple iOS 9.3
Although a minor release, iOS 9.3 brings many improvements to both iPads and iPhones, the most important one being the Night Shift mode.

Apple iOS 9.3 has become available earlier today and, despite the fact it is not a major update, it even brings a new feature that most iPhone and iPad users will surely appreciate. Dubbed Night Shift, this addition to iOS automatically shifts the display's color temperature depending on the moment of the day, decreasing the amount of blue light as the night comes down.

Although Night Shift appears to be the major change introduced by iOS 9.3, this update also fixes a major flaw that allows images and videos stored in iCloud to be decrypted. A similar bug found in iMessage has been fixed as well. In addition to these, Notes has been updated to support Touch ID authentication, but can also be protected by using a password. Multiple minor improvements will also be introduced to apps like News and Health, which now has Apple Watch integration and enhancements to third-party apps.

Those who did not receive the automatic update notification can get it manually via Settings>General menu.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
