Apple’s fixing iOS bugs with Siri update, first iOS 9.3.2 beta

In case you can’t tell, we’re in sort of an Apple wrap-up mode right now, bringing you tidbits on stories from multiple sources that all add up to something that’s hopefully a little more interesting than their constituent parts. We just told you the latest on what’s going on with the FBI’s interest in iPhone hacking, and now we’re turning our attention to Apple’s own efforts to fix some iOS bugs, as the company corrects some buggy Siri behavior and releases its very latest iOS beat for developers.

Siri’s voice control can be a great way to easily access disparate parts of Apple’s smartphone platform, but her wide reach can also be an avenue for trouble: just look at the role Siri plays in the lockscreen security issue we shared with you yesterday.

Apple introduced Night Shift in iOS 9.3, and it’s understandable that users are interested in trying it out. Siri can even help them toggle it on and off, but doing so ended up bypassing settings for the iOS Low Power Mode – normally, Night Shift shouldn’t be usable with Low Power engaged. Thanks to a quick update, Apple now has Siri inform users that they’ll have to disable the mode in order to get started with Night Shift.

It’s been about one week now since Apple released iOS 9.3.1, fixing some installation-related bugs in the process. Now the company’s moving right on with its platform development, releasing the first beta of iOS 9.3.2. Apple describes it as containing various bugfixes and unspecified improvements, but that’s all we have to go on for now – no word of any new features, major or otherwise.
