Apple has released the third beta of iOS 9.3 and, besides the Night Shift mode (which was launched alongside iOS 9.3 Beta 2), more 3D Touch shortcuts and the ability to lock and access Notes using Touch ID, there’s a new feature that the users can’t wait to test out: Wi-Fi Calling for Verizon. This means that when the cellular service will be weak on you iPhone, or if it’s losing the signal in certain areas, you can still send text messages and talk over Wi-Fi.
Apple introduced Wi-Fi calling in iOS 8 and the first US carrier that launched this feature for iOS was T-Mobile, then it was followed by Sprint and AT&T was approved after the release of the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, on October 8, 2015. The latest carrier that received approval from FCC for Wi-Fi calling is Verizon, after requesting permission on October 23, 2015. Moreover, Apple has added a carrier update for T-Mobile users which fixed a bug that prevented applications from loading on a cellular connection.
Another feature that will be available to the public once the iOS 9.3 will be officially released is the Night Shift mode, which will adjust the color temperature of the screen, by cutting down on blue light exposure in order to not tire eyes when browsing the internet at night. This feature will use your phone’s clock and location and will be enable after the sunset, in order to reduce eye-strain. Also, the users will be able to add a password or fingerprint to Notes, as a measure of protection against curious friends In addition, Notes will be sorted alphabetically, or by date created or modified.
The users who haven’t been notified of the new beta release can manually download and install it by going to their phone’s Settings>General>Software Update. The build number of the iOS 9.3 beta 3 is 13E5200d.
