Night Shift Mode iOS 9

Apple has just released a developer beta for iOS 9.3, which brings several big features to the operating system. With iOS 9.3 Apple is bringing a dedicate Night Mode to iOS for the first time, that is in addition to the new 3D Touch shortcuts for iPhone 6s, security features for Notes app and more. Apart from that the beta update also brings a bunch of other new features to the mobile operating system including landscape support for News app, new languages for Siri, Health app features and more.

Perhaps the most important addition made in this update is the Night Shift mode, which adjusts the colors of the display in accordance with the time of the day and user’s current location. More 3D Touch shortcuts have also been added for iPhone 6s and 6s Plus for Weather, Compass, Health, Settings, App Store and iTunes Store. Apple has also added the ability to jump between corresponding applications from Apple Pay and Wallet apps.

To ensure user’s privacy iOS 9.3 will be bringing a security feature for the Notes app, which will allow users to password and Touch ID protect their Notes so no one can access them without owner’s permission. On a side note we hope Apple will bring this feature to more stock and third-party apps. Other features include Activity app data in Health app, Ability for users to choose if they want to import a still duplicate for a Live Photo in Mac’s Photos app, Taptic feedback while opening app switcher with 3D Touch gesture and more.

  1. It is a good news for all the Apple users. But I am not so fascinated with this feature. Actually, I am not going to use this feature. Because, it turns the screen color orange. I don’t like this orange color screen. So I think it is better to have a screen protector which can provide same facilities without changing the screen color. I am thinking about having an ocushield screen protector which can help me to prevent harmful blue light.
