It seems like iOS 9.3 has been in beta for years now, but Apple isn’t quite done fine-tuning its biggest software update of the year.

Apple released iOS 9.3 beta 7 to developers this afternoon, exactly a week after the last version was seeded to devs and public testers. iOS 9.3 adds new features such as Night Shift mode, multiple Apple Watch pairings on one iPhone, improved Apple News and Apple Music apps, and some great education features for iPad.

Developers can grab the new beta directly from the Apple Developer Center portal or via an over-the-air update if you have the previous beta installed.

Here’s a roundup of the new features to expect:

iOS 9.3 could be released to the public as soon as March 21, after Apple’s press event that day. The keynote, to be hosted at the company’s campus in Cupertino, California, will be Apple’s first big product reveal of the year, debuting a new 4-inch iPhone SE, a 9.7-inch iPad Pro and some new Apple Watch bands.
