iOS 9.3 New Features – #fanfun

Apple has just announced all of the features it is adding to the next version of its mobile OS and here are some highlights!

Blue light filter called ‘Night Shift’
Night Shift works by using your iOS device’s clock and location to determine when the sun sets in your location. It then automatically shifts the colors in your display to the red/yellow end of the spectrum, and in the morning, it returns the display to its regular settings.

It’s been found that exposure to bright light in the evenings could make it harder to fall asleep so this new app is a good thing.

There may be another feature called iCloud for iBooks where your eBooks are synced across all devices. Let me know if you’ve been able to use this feature!

Here’s some more features announced on Apple’s website:

Now you can secure the notes that contain your most personal data — such as financial details, medical info, or website logins — with a password or fingerprint. You can also sort notes by date created, date modified, or alphabetically.

The articles in For You are now better tailored to your particular interests. And to help you discover new Favorites, For You suggests trending topics and Editors’ Picks. When a story contains video, you can play it right from your feed.

It’s simpler than ever to find third-party apps to track your health and wellness. Categories such as Weight, Workouts, and Sleep have a new slider menu that reveals great apps you can easily add to your Health dashboard.

New and For You from Apple Music — with songs, artists, and albums handpicked by experts, plus selections based on your preferences— are right at hand on your screen. And the Nearby feature in Maps lets you find gas, parking, restaurants, coffee, and more with a tap.

Students can log in to any iPad in any classroom and make it their own. Teachers can guide students through a lesson, see their progress, and keep them on track. Now admins have one portal where they can do everything from create Apple IDs to purchase apps to prepare devices for MDM. A new kind of ID for education, Managed Apple IDs are created and assigned by the school.

What new features are you looking forward to using on your Apple devices?
