Apple has released the 7th developer preview and public beta for iOS 9.3 and OS X 10.11.4 to users. The new updates are small in size and likely contain just bug fixes as we head towards the Apple’s 21 March event when the final releases are expected.

iOS 9.3 contains a lot of new features such as Night Shift, updates to built in apps such as Notes, News, Health and 3D Touch support for almost all apps that ship with iOS.
