The most important features coming to your iPhone with iOS 9.3

Here's why you should be pumped about Apple's latest update

iOS 9.3 is kind of a big deal for an update. Officially released yesterday during Apple's iPhone SE event, it's not just about bug fixes and minor tweaks (though they're always welcome) - it’s got some brand new features that are definitely worth waiting for.

Don’t believe us? Read on for yourself to see what all the fuss is about.

Night Shift

This intriguingly-named feature uses your iThing’s geolocation and time settings to judge when it’s late enough to tone down the blue light in its display, while warming up the colour temperature to make it easier on your eyes.

The end result is less strain on both your eyes and your brain, easing you gently into drowsiness - not that falling asleep has even been difficult for us, mind. It automatically adjusts back when the sun rises again too, so you don't have to lift a finger. 

Notable privacy

Got tonnes of secret digital thoughts jotted down into your Notes app? iOS 9.3 now lets you keep them under lock and fingerprint.

The latest update also lets organise your Notes by date created, date changed, or our personal favourite, alphabetical order.
