Exactly two weeks after the third test version, Apple has just released the iOS 9.3 beta 4 (compilation 13E5214d), the OS X 10.11.4 beta 4 (compilation 15E49a), the watchOS 2.2 beta 4 (compilation 13V5129c) and the tvOS 9.2 beta 4 (build 13Y5210d) for developers.
The novelties of the systems are many, including:
- iOS 9.3: mode Night Shift, Notes protection, new information in the Sade app, expansion of shortcuts in native app icons using 3D Touch and iBooks syncing of iBooks documents and more!
- OS X 10.11.4: Banknote protection, support for Live Photos in the Messaging app, among other things.
- watchOS 2.2: new features in the Maps app and the possibility to pair two or more Apple Watches with an iPhone (using iOS 9.3), etc.
- tvOS 9.2: possibility to organize apps / channels inside folders, iOS-like multitasking screen, iCloud Photo Library support, to Dictation (Dictation) and more.
In addition, the company also made available Xcode 7.3 beta 4 (build 7D152p) and the Apple Configurator 2.2 beta 4 (compilation 3C36).
The new versions are available both through the Apple Developer (portal for developers) and the OS update system (as long as you, the developer, are already using some of the test versions).
If any significant news appears, we will obviously inform you here on the website. 😉

For the third time, Apple changed the cone from mode Night Shift in the Control Center of iOS 9.3 beta 4:

J o tvOS 9.2 beta 4 comes with updated Siri Remote firmware (with better motion sensor performance) and a “What's New?” section. ("What’s New?") inside of System Settings which is still disabled.
In parallel to this, what appeared to be a bug in past compilations has not yet been corrected, that is, perhaps a deliberate decision by Apple itself. THE Apple Pencil can no longer be used on iPad Pro to browse screens, touch icons, scroll pages, etc. It is cheering for the company to go back before iOS 9.3 is released to everyone

Update II · 02/23/2016 s 15:26

Update III · 02/23/2016 s 18:46
About Apple Pencil, Apple made the following statement to The Verge:
We believe that the finger will always be the main way for users to navigate on an iPad, but we understand that some customers like to use Apple Pencil for this too and we are working on ways to better implement the feature while maintaining compatibility with the latest betas. We will add this functionality back in the next beta for iOS 9.3.
Good news for iPad Pro users. 🙂
Update IV, by Rafael Fischmann · 02/23/2016 s 21:39
