Apple Seeds iOS 9.3 Beta 5 To Developers And Public Testers

Apple has released a new developer and public seed of iOS 9.3 beta 5 (13E5225a) to registered members and made available to download. The fifth pre-release is now available to both in Apple’s iOS Developer Resource Center.

The beta 5 of iOS 9.3 release comes about a week after the fourth seed of it rolled out and continues on the testing road map of iOS since the initial release is early January. As promised by Apple, today’s update restores full navigational functionality to the Apple Pensil, which means the support for scrolling, and swiping between apps is once again functional. In earlier betas of iOS 9.3, the Apple Pencil has been unable to be used for tasks like selecting text, accessing menus, and general editing functions in non-drawing apps.

The rest of the release focuses predominantly on stability and under-the-hood improvements that exist to try and get iOS 9.3 ready for final. Multi-user login, is one of the primary feature, limited to MDM customers and is not available to the general public is also restored.

Discovered that there’s no longer found a pop up menu with the Night Shift toggle in the Control Center to “Turn On For Now” or “Turn On Until Tomorrow.” What’s new is that the button’s function is now simpler, turning Night Shift on and off on demand.


The update can either be grabbed directly on the device using OTA update mechanism, or from the Apple Developer portal.
