iOS 9.3 features

Though most of you might have got to know the features of iOS 10 by now but for those who still have their iOS 9 or iOS9.3 here are the best six features that would work well with your iPad. So here you go.

1. Schedule night shift mode

Schedule Night Shift

Recently there was a research by scientists showing that how tablets or iPhones deprive us from sleep. looking at a tablet or phone’s screen late in the evening can lead to a disturbed night’s sleep because of the amount of blue light it emits. But with Night Shift mode in iOS 9.3 limits the amount of blue light produced by your device by applying an orange tint to your iPad or iPhone’s screen.

You can set Night Shift to switch on and off at certain times by tapping Settings, Display and Brightness, Night Shift then sliding the Schedule slider to the right. Tap the From/To field, Custom Schedule, then select a time under Turn On At and another under Turn Off At. Alternatively, set it to automatically activate when it starts getting dark and switch off when the sun comes up by tapping ‘Sunset to Sunrise’. You can also adjust the intensity of the effect using the Colour Temperature slider.

2. Switch on night shift mode instantly

Schedule night shift at once

If you want to activate the Night Shift effect instantly, then tap Settings, Display & Brightness, Night Shift and slide the Manually Enable Until Tomorrow slider to the right. Alternatively, swipe up from the bottom of the screen to open the Control Center, then tap the Night Shift button, the sun-and-moon icon at the bottom left.

3. Duplicate images in the Photos app

iOS 9.3 also has added a quick way to duplicate photos – ideal if you want to create backups of an image you intend to edit, for example. Open the Photos app, tap the photo, then tap the share button. On the next screen you’ll see the photo you selected at the top of the screen, marked with a blue tick. Next tap the ‘Duplicate’ icon at the bottom-left of the screen and tap Camera Roll at the top left. The images will be added to your Camera Roll library as the most recent additions.

4. Use new 3D Touch submenus

The 3D Touch shortcuts function which lets you long-press the screen for a menu of options now works on more apps, including Weather, App Store, Stocks, Health, Compass and Settings – the App Store app shortcut lets you update your apps, for example. On the homescreen, hold your finger down on one of these apps to open its submenu, then select the option you want.

5. Customize your News app

Apple has improved how it selects which articles appear in the For You section in its News app. If you wish to customize articles, then open the News app, tap Explore on the menu bar at the bottom of the screen and browse the categories, tapping the ‘+’ symbol on any that interest you. To remove any of these, tap Favourites, Edit then tap the ‘X’ symbol on those you want to delete.

6. Password-protect your Notes app

Notes App

Apple has added password-protection to notes you create in the Notes app, which means you can feel more confident about using them to store sensitive information like PINs and passwords, for example. Just Tap Settings on the homes creen, Notes in the left-hand panel, then Password and follow the instructions to add one  and if your device has a Touch ID fingerprint scanner, you can use that instead.

Open the Notes app, then select the note you want to password-protect as this must be contained in your iCloud or ‘On my iPad’ folder. Tap the share button and select Lock Note. Enter the password you just created when prompted and you’ll see an unlocked padlock icon appear next to the note’s title on the left. Repeat this process for any other note you want to secure. To lock all password-protected notes, tap the padlock icon at the top right of the screen and it will change to show it’s locked.
