iOS 9.3 beta 5 Released Today to Developers [Release Notes]

ios_9.3_beta_5 iOS SDK 9.3 beta 5 provides support for developing iOS apps. It’s packaged with a complete set of Xcode tools, compilers, and frameworks for creating apps for iOS and OS X. These tools include the Xcode IDE and the Instruments analysis tool, among many others.

Notes and Known Issues

  • App Store
    • Known Issue
      • Users who performed an iCloud or iTunes restore onto a device with iOS 9.3 beta 3 from a backup created with iOS 9.3 beta 1 or 2 may be unable to install apps or log into iCloud when upgrading to iOS 9.3 beta 5. Workaround: Perform an erase-install of iOS 9.3 beta 5 and restore data from either the iCloud or iTunes backup
  • Apple Watch
    • Known Issue
    • Certain features in the Apple Watch app require the developer seed of watchOS 2.2.
      • Fixed in Beta 5
        • The permission prompt does not appear for requests originated on Apple Watch. Workaround: Request permission on iPhone first, and the permission will sync over.
        • When paired with an iPhone running iOS 9.3, an Apple Watch running watchOS 2.1 will fail to send back Reminder responses to the phone.
  • iCloud Keychain
    • Known Issue
    • iOS releases from iOS 9.1 and OS X releases from OS X v.10.11.1 have had the potential to introduce extraneous keychain synchronization messages, which in turn may impact your battery life, particularly on your iOS devices. This issue has been resolved in previous iOS 9.3 and OS X v10.11.4 betas, but it is important to take the following steps on all iOS and OS X devices signed into your iCloud account:
      • iOS and OS X devices that are running beta versions of iOS or OS X should be updated to beta 5.
      • Devices that have not been updated to a beta version of iOS or OS X should be temporarily be signed out of iCloud, then signed back in after waiting a few minutes.
  • Wi-Fi
    • Known Issue
    • In a classroom environment with many iPad devices connected to a single access point, some devices may intermittently lose data connectivity with Classroom, other devices, and the Internet, even though the status bar shows that the device is connected to a Wi-Fi access point.
      • Workaround: Disable and then reenable Wi-Fi from Settings > Wi-Fi to resume connectivity. Note that for a Shared iPad, you may need to reboot the affected device.
