IOS 9.3, watchOS 2.2 and tvOS 9.2 Be­tas are Packed with Fea­tures

HWM (Malaysia) - - TELEPORT -

At the be­gin­ning of 2016, Ap­ple in­tro­duced three new be­tas across the board for de­vel­op­ers: the iOS 9.3 beta for the iPhones and iPads, the tvOS 9.2 for the new Ap­ple TV, and watchOS 2.2 for the Ap­ple Watch.

Of the trio, iOS 9.3 beta comes with the most ad­di­tions on board. The first new fea­ture that Ap­ple in­tro­duced with it is the Night Shift mode, which ef­fec­tively switches the back­light on the iOS de­vice to warmer col­ors and cuts back on the blue light, mak­ing it eas­ier for the eyes of night read­ers.

The iOS Health app is also given a facelift, with im­proved health data and de­tails (e.g. move­ment, ex­er­cise, heart rate, idle­ness, etc), as well as the abil­ity for de­vel­op­ers to sync mul­ti­ple Ap­ple Watches to a sin­gle iPhone (thanks in no small part to the new watchOS 2.2 beta).

Even the Notes app has had its se­cu­rity beefed up, with the new iOS 9.3 beta now able to re­strict ac­cess to your notes to the fin­ger­prints of the de­vice owner, and no one else. That means data such as fi­nan­cial de­tails, health data or even fam­ily de­tails are kept un­der lock and key, and only ac­ces­si­ble via the recog­ni­tion of its user's fin­ger­prints or per­sonal pass­word.

The new tvOS 9.2 beta also comes with some nifty fea­tures as well, giv­ing the Ap­ple TV ac­cess to Pod­casts, fold­ers, a new multi-task­ing in­ter­face, and (at long last!) Blue­tooth key­board sup­port.
