Apple has released the third beta of iOS 9.3.2 on Tuesday, April 26, allowing iPhone, iPad, and iPhone Touch developers to test the software.
The first beta of iOS 9.3.2 was launched on April 6, while its second beta has been available to developers on April 20.
The beta testing of iOS 9.3.2 comes just less than a month after iOS 9.3 was released. Although iOS 9.3 was an improvement over the earlier iOS versions, it can’t be denied that it came with a lot of bugs. One of these caused apps to become unresponsive (and even crashed or froze the entire phone) when users opened links in Safari. Because of this, Apple decided to release iOS 9.3.1 on March 31, just a week after iOS 9.3 came out. But it seems that Apple’s problems with its mobile operating software are not over; the new iOS version also had its own issues, such as draining the device’s battery too fast.
Fortunately, Apple seems to be taking charge by using iOS 9.3.2 to improve its operating software. This latest version doesn’t make any outward-facing changes to devices since it’s said to be focused on under-the-hood improvements. It will reportedly fix the remaining bugs in iOS 9.3 and 9.3.1, such as the bug that launches the Game Center app as a white screen, crashes games, and freezes the Settings app when people select Game Center options. iOS 9.3.2 is also expected to allow the simultaneous use of the Night Shift mode and the Low Power mode, which was not possible in devices that used iOS 9.3 and 9.3.1 and has irked many users who want to use the two modes together.
The third iOS 9.3.2 beta, which has the build number 13F65, can be downloaded over the air or through the Apple Developer Center. Its size is around 32MB, so developers have to ensure that their devices have enough memory space and that they have a stable internet connection before downloading the beta. The beta is expected to be available to public beta testers soon, so those who want to give it a try should stay tuned to know when it would be released.
