iOS 9 Beta 3 includes some new features

Apple released the third beta for iOS 9 with refreshes and unexpected updates.

Apple has been working non-stop on its new mobile operating system, iOS 9, since it was announced in June at the WWDC keynote. As the release date approaches, multiple new betas have been released to developers and to the public with new capabilities. The third beta just released Wednesday, and a host of new features has been added for early adopters to make use of. Apple's cohesive, well-designed News application is now working with the latest beta release.

The News application was heavily outlined at the conference, but some new features Apple had not shed light on have made their way to the third beta. Improved two-factor authentication is included, and any device that has been signed into is seen as trusted, and can access the same services that other devices linked to that Apple ID. The app folders on the iPad have also gone from a 3x3 arrangement to a 4x4 arrangement, and this makes the folder feature a bit more useful. Separate folders for pictures containing faces and screenshots have also been included, helping organize the photos app.

The last new updates appearing with iOS beta 3 are improvements to the newest search functionality, as well as the ability to stream songs from Apple Music on cellular data at the highest quality. Overall, iOS 9's progress seems to be moving along well, with the final version set to release in the fall.
