  • Apple Releases iOS 9.3 Beta 1, Night Shift is Biggest, f.lux-like New Feature


    Monday, Apple released the first beta of iOS 9.3. It is definitely the biggest feature release since iOS 9 last September, and coming at the top of the list of changes is Night Shift, a setting that warms display colors at sunset to help users sleep after using their device at night.

    Many studies have shown that exposure to bright blue light in the evening can affect your circadian rhythms and make it harder to fall asleep. Night Shift uses your iOS device’s clock and geolocation to determine when it’s sunset in your location. Then it automatically shifts the colors in your display to the warmer end of the spectrum, making it easier on your eyes. In the morning, it returns the display to its regular settings. Pleasant dreams.

    Notes
    Keep your private information under lock and fingerprint.
    Notes is one of those apps you use all the time for all kinds of things. Now you can secure the notes that contain your most personal data — such as financial details, medical info, or website logins — with a password or fingerprint. You can also sort notes by date created, date modified, or alphabetically.

    News
    This just in: The news you want, even more personalized.
    The articles in For You are now better tailored to your particular interests. And to help you discover new Favorites, For You suggests trending topics and Editors’ Picks. When a story contains video, you can play it right from your feed. On your iPhone, you can view everything in landscape. And when you check for updates, the latest stories appear much faster — so you can catch up on the day’s events quickly and easily.1

    Health
    Discover new health apps and see more on your dashboard.
    It’s simpler than ever to find third-party apps to track your health and wellness. Categories such as Weight, Workouts, and Sleep have a new slider menu that reveals great apps you can easily add to your Health dashboard.2 The Health app also now displays your move, exercise, and stand data, as well as your goals, from Apple Watch. So you can see all your health metrics in one place and easily share your data with third‑party apps.

    CarPlay
    Find new music.
    And new places to go.
    With iOS 9.3, CarPlay adds even more useful features. New and For You from Apple Music — with songs, artists, and albums handpicked by experts, plus selections based on your preferences— are right at hand on your screen. And the Nearby feature in Maps lets you find gas, parking, restaurants, coffee, and more with a tap. So you’ll know the best places to stop, whether you’re on your daily commute or an epic road trip.

    Education Preview
    The best classroom experience is about to get better.
    Technology can reshape education. And iPad, with its powerful features and apps, opens up new, more engaging ways of learning. With the iOS 9.3 beta, you’ll find a preview of new features that will make it even easier for schools to put devices where they’ll have the greatest impact — in the hands of students.
    F.lux notes on their website that their software is patent pending. Given the almost identical feature set of Apple's Night Shift, it is questionable if Apple should be able to do this without permission. The f.lux team hasn't commented on Night Shift, so we don't know what their response is going to be, or if they did give Apple permission to include such a feature in iOS.

    Other notable changes include additional 3D Touch shortcuts for some apps, creating still photos from Live Photos, new languages for Siri, and the ability to store your own ebook files in iCloud and access them in iBooks on all devices.

      This isn't a full Os update. The fact that they are making any kind of feature update now is uncharacteristic of Apple. It either marks a shift in their updating strategy, or even bigger plans for iOS10.
