Unlike some of the other recent beta releases, iOS 9.3 is a major update for iOS 9 which brings a number of new features to iPhones and iPads. There’s a f.lux-like feature called Night Shift mode which reduces blue light automatically in the evenings to provide warmer colors for easy reading on the display. There’s also the ability to connect multiple Apple Watch units (running watchOS 2.2 and above) to iPhone, multi-user support of sorts for iPad which is specifically designed for using iPads in educational sector, among many other small and big features.
