Apple has just recently released their latest update dubbed the iOS 9.3. With it comes a list of new features and improvements for all iOS 9 users. As with other iOS updates, this particular patch is also free of charge to download. One of the most notable fix with the latest update is that it fixes the notorious bug that would otherwise brick your iPhone should you accidentally set the date back to May 1970.
iOS 9.3 Fixes Bugs and Brings New Features
Among the list of features that come with iOS 9.3, there are a few that are really worth mentioning. To start, the iBooks app gets a new sync feature. One of the most annoying things to note about this particular app is that, for some reason, should you load PDFs or eBooks that are not purchased within the iBooks Store, then these files would not sync with the device. With the latest update, this oversight has been fixed so you can now sync PDFs and user-added eBooks across all your Apple devices.
There’s also a handy new feature to the Apple iOS 9.3 which is called Night Shift. The notion about this new functionality is that many tech manufacturers are adding a “reduce blue light” mode in monitors and other displays. This is because according to research, seeing too much blue light in the evening can cause disruptions in sleeping patterns. In this mode, you can let the iPhone automatically do it with the use of time and location settings, or you can toggle it manually within the Control Center.
Well, how about saving a still moment from a Live photo? That can now be done as well with the latest update. Live photos are a great feature but they do take up more space, and since Apple devices are scorned for not having external memory card slots, users would have to make do with what the device has. With the new update, users are now able to save a full-resolution still photo from a Live Photo. To do this, just tap on the Share button then choose “Duplicate,” after which will let another menu option pop out that will say “Duplicate as Still Photo.”
Aside from these features, the iOS 9.3 update also has the protected notes feature (wherein you can store you sensitive information and encrypt it using the notes app), and an extended 3D touch.
