Apple's iOS 9.3 Targets Education
Apple today released a beta of iOS 9.3 and revealed that the system update will bring new features to education. This version of iOS 9.3 is chiefly for developers. It I ntroduces several new classroom-friendly features, such as the ability for students to sign into any iPad (rather than just one), and a new classroom app for teachers to use for managing their students and assignments. Further, iOS 9.3 brings more control over iOS to school admins, who will be able to create and manage school-specific Apple IDs on various devices, as well as manage the hardware deployed within the school district. iOS 9.3 also tweaks Apple Health, Apple News, and Apple Notes. The update introduces Night Shift, a mode that begins to reduce the amount of blue light throughout the OS during the evening hours in order to help assist with sleeping. (Google's book reading app does something similar.) The revised platform improves CarPlay with more Apple Musiuc features, as well. Apple hasn't said when it might release iOS 9.3 to the general public. Apple also released new betas of tvOS, watchOS, and OS X.
