2. Night Shift

A new ‘Night Shift’ mode will automatically adjust the colors on iPhone and iPad screens when night falls, becoming warmer and less eye-straining so that Apple users won’t be disturbed by interruptions to their sleep caused by harsh blue screen light.

3. Smart Education Upgrades

Education is at the heart of iOS 9.3. In fact so much so Apple has released a dedicated education section on its website just to preview all the changes the update will bring.

Highlights include iPad multi-user support (called ‘Shared iPad’) which enables students to log onto any iPad and get full access to their apps, books, documents and places them exactly where they left off.

‘Photo ID’ will show the student’s picture once they’ve logged in to avoid iPads getting mixed up during the class.

Young students get a more basic version accessed with a simple four digit PIN.

Also breaking new ground is the ‘Classroom’ app which allows a teacher to control all the iPads of the students in their class (for example to open a particular app) and even jump to individual student’s iPads to monitor work (‘Screen View’).

Meanwhile ‘Apple School Manager’ is a hub for teachers to compile courses, purchase class books and apps, track individual iPads and more.
