You can set up a schedule, for example, from 11:00pm – 7:00am for Night Shift to come on automatically or you choose to turn it on manually whenever you need it.

Notes:

Now, you can secure your notes Password Protection. A new feature in iOS 9.3 allows you to protect your sensitive Notes with a password or with Touch ID. It’s a great way to keep stuff like security codes or medical information safe on your iPhone.

Health: 

I don’t know if any app can make you healthier, but the Health app is certainly making it easier to keep track of your health. The app now has categories for your Apple Watch’s move, exercise, and stand trackers, and even tracks your day-to-day goals. In addition, the weight, workouts, and sleep data screens have a slider menu that suggests great third-party apps for recording that data.

Car Play:

Apple CarPlay is featured in several 2016 and 2017 car models, and before many of those cars actually hit the road, Apple is tweaking some of the music playback options. With iOS 9.3, CarPlay will begin suggesting songs, artists, and albums based on your preferences.

In Apple Maps, a new Nearby feature will show you points of interest—gas stations, restaurants, coffee shops and more—while you’re driving, so you don’t have to search while you’re on the road.

News:

 

Apple says: “This just in: The news you want, even more personalized.”

The articles in the “For You”  designation are now better tailored to your particular interests. And to help you discover new Favorites, “For You” suggests trending topics and Editors’ Picks. When a story contains video, you can play it right from your feed. On your iPhone, you can view everything in landscape. And when you check for updates, the latest stories appear much faster — so you can catch up on the day’s events quickly and easily.
