Apple Seeds iOS 9.3 Beta 1.1 To Developers

Following the public beta release for iOS 9.3, Apple has seeded an updated version of iOS 9.3 beta 1 to developers. The new update, which appears as iOS 9.3 beta 1.1 in the OTA Software Update on iOS, contains bug fixes and improvements. All developers are recommended to update to this latest version of the iOS 9.3 beta.


According to Apple’s release notes, the iOS 9.3 1.1 beta fixes an installation issue that developers encountered when trying to install the first iOS 9.3 beta. On some devices, updating to iOS 9.3 failed, causing the update to freeze at the Apple logo. We at MacRumors encountered this installation issue on an iPad mini 2, with multiple failures preventing the beta from being installed.

The update also fixed an issue with apps that used compass data on devices that did not include a motion coprocessor. On these devices, the locationd service would continually crash for as long as the compass request continued.

iOS 9.3 is a pretty sizable update, including several new features. That includes the likes of Night Shift, which changes the amount of blue light the iOS user sees on their display after night sets in. The iOS 9.3 update also allows an iPhone to pair with multiple Apple Watches, and brings new education-focused features to the fore.

The iOS 9.3 Beta 1.1, build 13E5181f, is available as an over-the-air update and through the Apple Developer Center.

iOS 9.3 is expected to be released to the public in the spring, so it is likely to see several additional updates over the beta testing period.
