A new iOS update is here for your iPhone, iPad and iPod. iOS 9.3 is now available for and includes welcome upgrades that’ll help you sleep better and stay organized. If you haven’t already downloaded it, here’s how.
is arriving on your iOS devices now, as free update. Let’s take a look at the best new features Apple has given us.
Night Shift makes your screens easier on the eyes
Night Shift is long-awaited for many iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users … the feature automatically shifts the color temperature of the screen over the course of the day, gradually reducing the amount of blue light the iOS display emits as daylight ends. This makes your screen look more yellow, but ostensibly has health benefits: it should let your eyes more easily relax and there are studies that indicate this feature can make it easier to fall asleep after using your iPhone in bed.
Night Shift can be enabled in Settings to turn on and off automatically with a schedule; you’ll probably want to set it based on the automatic sunset and sunrise schedule option. However, you can also enable it manually through Control Center: Tap the sun/moon icon in the center of the bottom row of Control Center.
Notes With Password Protection And Touch ID
The humble Notes app gets some love with 9.3. You can now password protect your notes to keep important info safe from prying eyes. You can also now finally sort notes by date or title. Hardly revolutionary stuff, but it does make this simple app much more useful.
