Less than a week after dropping a big batch of new software on developers and public testers, Apple is back with a sixth beta build of iOS 9.3 as well as new betas for watchOS, tvOS, and OS X El Capitan.

The software updates bring a host of new features to developers and public testers the iPhone like NightShift mode, folders on Apple TV, multiple Apple Watch pairings on one iPhone, improved Apple News and Apple Music apps, and some great education features for iPad.

Here’s a preview of some of the new goodies:

The new pre-release versions of iOS, tvOS and watchOS can be downloaded from the Apple Developer Center. Testers won’t be able to install watchOS 2.2 on their timepieces until their iPhone, iPad or iPad touch has been updated with the new Apple Watch app in iOS 9.3 beta 6. The tvOS beta requires you to plug in your device to a Mac via USB.

The sixth betas for iOS 9.3, watchOS 2.2, tvOS 9.2 and OS X 10.11 mostly contain bug fixes and under the hood improvements. A public release of all the new software could be made available as soon as March 21st, when the company is expected to host a keynote to unveil the iPhone SE, new iPad, and Apple Watch hardware.

We’ll let you know what new goodies we find once the software is on our devices. If you spot something new on yours, drop us a tip in the comments below.
