What’s New in iOS 9.3 & iOS 9.3.5



Private iPhone Notes with Touch ID

Private iPhone Notes with Touch ID

Once your iPhone is unlocked in iOS 9.2, anyone can read any note on your device. While you can avoid handing your unlocked iPhone to anyone you don't trust, there are times you want to share videos or photos with someone and they could easily switch to your Notes for a look.

If you use Apple Notes in iOS 9.2, there is nothing to stop them from seeing medical info, passwords or financial information you store there. Here's how to lock notes on iPhone and iPad in iOS 9.3.

The iOS 9.3 update lets you lock down private notes in Apple Notes with an option to unlock with a password or Touch ID. The iOS 9.3 upgrade also allows you to sort nots by date created, date modified and alphabetically so it is easier to find the notes you want.

  • Protect notes that contain your most personal data with Touch ID or a passcode
  • Sort notes alphabetically, by date created, or by date edited
  • When sketching, quickly bring up a fresh canvas with a two finger swipe, or by tapping the New Sketch button
  • A new checklist button at the bottom of every note makes it easier to create lists
  • Show thumbnails instead of large images and attachments by long-pressing on any image or attachment in a note
  • Choose whether photos and videos taken within Notes are stored only in Notes, or also added to Photos
  • Long-press on an Evernote Export file to import its contents into Notes


Additional new iOS 9.3 Notes features and fixes are listed above. This will also come to the Mac with OS X 10.11.4, through a passcode unlock option.

    All I care about is that they fix the damn copy issue where when you try to copy something, you end up pasting the previous item on the clipboard.

    My iPhone 6 stays on iOS 8.3! (The smoothest, most bug free iOS yet! For iPhone 6 at least…) I’m not getting on the wagon which only slows down my phone with each ‘upgrade’…
    Don’t you think many iPhone 4s users wish they didn’t go past 7.2.1?

      Hell yeah, a downgrade option would be freaking awesome. My iPad 3 lags terribly with iOS 9…

      I so agree!!!!!!!!!! 9.3 only that got rid of a near 6 month screen glitch that slide to unlock where app icons got huge than froze for a few seconds than ok, Apple Store called it screen stuttering??? Stutter gate lol I had 5 6s plus new out of box and 9.3 I have to admit did indeed fix!!

    I really appreciate this initiative of Apple. But honestly, I don’t like this feature. I think it is better to use a blue light screen protector like ” Ocushield” rather than using this feature. Because a blue light protector can protect us not only at the time of night but also 24*7.

    It’s hard to trust an article with so many spelling errors. Do you even proofread, Josh?

    And the ¨night shift idea¨ was stollen from Flux, as you can see:

    You have numerous sections of your article in different places all proclaiming numerous changes coming in iOS 9 .3. So far all I hear anything about his night shift and the possibility that the old cases won’t fit! What are the innovations that would induce me to want another system? And when will apple stop pestering me to update when I don’t want to buy illuminating constant reminders that it’s time to update on my phone screen. So far I see more annoyance than progress. Disappointing performance for Apple.

    Will 9.3 fix the following past photos blurred, freezing, automatically hard resets whenever iPad feels like it?

    I’m still stuck in iOS 9.0.2 as jailbreak for iOS 9.3 is not available. Great features!

    It simply doesn’t matter because Apple fixed iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak in the latest update and I am not going to update my devices to iOS 9.3.4.
