Apple released its next round of product betas covering all its hardware. Below is a summary of the best features from all the betas –
tvOS 9.2 beta 1
Support for app folders and bluetooth keyboards.
watch 2.2 beta
Multiple watches can be paired to one iPhone.
iOS 9.3 beta
Notes app – now possible to lock individual notes with a passcode and unlock via Touch ID
Night mode – based on your time and location, iOS will automatically make the colour temperature warmer on the display warmer to get rid distracting blues at night. Blue tones are replaced at night with more yellower tones. A dark theme option would have been good too but alas not yet.
Quick 3D Actions – many more stock apps have had 3D Touch quick actions enabled – App Store, iTunes, Weather, Settings, Compass, and Health
iPad – multiple user mode is introduced albeit for use in education only at present.
Classroom app for education – this allows teachers to monitor all the pupils with an iPad, check which apps are being used and their progress with work flow in real time.
News app received some minor tweaks.
Health app now displays more information from your Apple Watch eg. move and stand data, plus recommends third-party apps in the various different categories e.g. weight, sleep, workouts.
Live Photos – you can now save a full resolution photo from a Live Photo. When using the Share Sheet, choosing “Duplicate” now gives an option to create a Still Photo duplicate of a Live Photo.
