Apple started seeding the fifth beta version of iOS 9.3. The functionalities which were not available in the earlier beta versions of iOS 9.3 such as the “Apple Pencil” got an upgrade. We can believe that the company came forward with an update very soon just after releasing the fourth update last week due to the huge public demand on the Apple Pencil’s functionality.
We had previously reported and reviewed when Apple released the first beta version of iOS 9.3. The iOS 9.3 added features such as Night Shift mode, Secured Notes and enhanced 3D Touch Quick Actions in the iPhone devices. While Android users will have to install Twilight, an app to control the brightness of the screen for safe reading, iOS 9.3 allows the users to control the brightness without having to install an additional app.
But, the navigational features of the Apple Pencil have been missing all the while since the inception of iOS 9.3 beta and Apple has now restored a few of them back in the latest update. The update can be downloaded either via Over-the-air (OTA) or from the iOS section of Apple Development Center.
The Night Shift toggle in the Control Center has also got an update in the latest beta of iOS 9.3. The function of button is now very easy, turning Night Shift on and off on demand.
Apple is known for releasing updates only once in a while. This is the first time the company has shaken up its releasing strategy of updates. However, there is no news yet on whether when a stable version of iOS 9.3 will be released globally. We can expect it to happen very soon.
