iOS 9.3 Public Beta is out now. Here’s how to get it


A few days ago, Apple had started pushing its beta version of iOS 9.3 to developers. Now you can get a glimpse of what’s to come as Apple is extending the beta release to the general public. iOS 9.3 Public Beta 1 is rolling out now and for those who are adventurous, you may give it a try.

iOS 9.3 brings a couple of new features for iDevices which includes NightShift mode, a low blue light filter that aids better sleep at night. If you’re using an iPhone 6s/6s Plus, you’ll get additional Force Touch shortcuts for more apps including the Settings icon.

There are other improvements for native apps including Notes, Heath and Live Photos. For Malaysia, another new feature is Siri speaking in Malay, along with Finnish and Hebrew languages.

If you’re well aware of the risk of using unfinished software, you can proceed to download iOS 9.3 beta with the following steps:

1. Open up on your iPhone or iPad Safari browser.
2. Login using your Apple ID
3. Click on Double profile
4. Once that’s done, go to Settings > General > Software Update and click on Download and Install

Take note that the beta software is 1.7GB, so you’ll need to free up more space especially if you’re on a 16GB iPhone. As always, please backup your photos and files before proceeding.
