The first beta of iOS 9.3 is now available for the members of the Apple’s Beta Software Program. Until this update will be officially released, the testers will get used to the new Night Shift mode, the new Wi-Fi Assist option and the new Safari alert dialog interface. But, more about these changes we’ll tell you below.



There are many reasons why it’s worth installing the iOS 9.3 Beta 1 on your iPhone and first of all, your eyes will be grateful when staring at the screen at night, because the Night Shift feature will “warm up” the screen in order to cut down on blue light exposure, making the colors look warmer. This way, the eyes will no longer think it’s daytime and the mind will be relaxed and ready to fall asleep the moment the user puts his head on the pillow.

Another addition is the Wi-Fi Assist option, which will tell you how much data you’ve consumed after switching to a cellular connection when the local WiFi connection was weak. The feature was introduced in iOS 9, but the users complained about their increased cell phone bills, because they didn’t know that Wi-Fi Assist was using so much data when using applications that were streaming audio or video.

The third important change is related to Safari, which has a new JavaScript dialog with a more 2D look. This isn’t a visible change, so you might not notice it at a quick glance. A Reddit user opened a thread and posted a screenshot of the JavaScript alert dialog in iOS 9.3 beta 1, comparing it with the Android 5.0 alert interface. The new interface follows the design choices of iOS 7, but its buttons have been moved to the right side and they’re now grouped closer. Also, the borders around each button have been removed, while the rounded edges of the alert have a larger radius than what Android is offering with its current Material Design.

While the new interface looks super clean, some users believe that the beta 1 of iOS 9.3 has too much wasted space.
