Apple continues to tweak Night Shift mode in new iOS 9.3 beta 2

By Stephen Schenck January 25, 2016, 6:13 pm

Two weeks back, Apple gave developers their first look at the upcoming 9.3 release of iOS, and maybe most notable among the new features it delivered was a mode for adjusting screen color temperature in the hopes of offering more comfortable late-night usage: Night Shift. Apple’s been continuing to refine things behind the scenes since that early release, and today we see the company see its second iOS 9.3 beta to devs, further refining the Night Shift experience while making a few other tweaks around the operating system.

With iOS 9.3 beta 2, users will notice a new Night Shift interface for the iOS Control Center, giving users quick access for either toggling on Night Shift temporarily, or setting it to remain engaged until morning.


Buried a little more deeply, we also see Apple change how Night Shift settings are accessed. Instead of dumping a bunch of controls right into the system Display & Brightness interface, Apple’s splitting things up, moving the color temperature slider and other Night Shift preferences to their own sub-screen.

What else is cooking in the new 9.3 beta? The Apple Watch app makes it easier to see just which watch face you’re rocking on your wearable, Apple pulls wallpaper adjustment from the 3D Touch menu for Settings, and system Privacy settings add a new section for Media Library info (showing connected apps).

That’s all we’ve heard about for now, but expect even more tweaks to surface as Apple continues to issue new betas in anticipation of the final iOS 9.3 release.
