iOS 9.3 was announced a few a months ago and it is the biggest supplementary update to iOS in quite some time. And they have been seeding beta builds to both registered developers and public beta users, since it’s announcement. Apple today dropped iOS 9.3 Beta 5 to both developers and public beta users a like.

Beta 5 comes just over a week since Beta 4 of iOS 9.3 was released. This specific beta fixes an issue with notifications not working properly with the iPhone and the Apple Watch, as well as restoring full control with the Apple Pencil on the iPad Pro. Along with many bug fixes and a new placement for Night Shift mode in Control Center.

iOS 9.3 is coming this Spring, hopefully soon, some rumored dates have suggested it being released in March. The biggest feature of 9.3 would have to be Night Shift mode, which changes the temperature of the display depending on the time of day. Out of the box it will be set to change with sunrise and sunset in your area, but you can customize it to specific times. This will help to make using your device at night easier on your eyes, as it will be warmer rather than cooler.

Along with Night Shift mode, you will find the ability to create password protected Notes. This will allow you to safely keep Notes more private and you can lock or unlock them with Touch ID. 3D Touch is getting an upgrade, as many more options and usability features are being added to stock applications. For CarPlay users, you will now have access to the “nearby” features in Maps and Apple Music integration has been greatly enhanced. Lastly, you will be able to use iBooks in iCloud and many bugs have been fixed.

iOS 9.3 Beta 5 is now available to official develops and users enrolled in the public beta program.
