Apple has released the third iOS 9.3 public beta to non-developer testers today. iOS 9.3 public beta 3 follows this week’s third developer iOS 9.3 beta release as well. The latest beta cleans up issues introduced in the last version while adding some new features as well.

iOS 9.3, which is expected to be released to everyone next month, adds loads of new features for iPhones and iPads including Night Shift mode to change the display temperature for evening reading, Touch ID/secure passwords to protect Notes, new 3D Touch shortcuts on the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, enhancements to the Health and Activity apps, iCloud for iBooks PDF syncing, and much more.

Changes in iOS 9.3 beta 3 included:

  • Verizon Wi-Fi Calling
  • Fixed Control Center icons in landscape
  • Apple News settings in Sweden, possibly other countries (although no app)
  • Tweaked Night Shift explainer in Control Center
  • Tweaked Lock/Unlock toggle in Notes outside of the share sheet
