Apple has just seeded the third iOS 9.3 beta to developers for testing. This is probably the last but one build for developers released until the alleged debut of iOS 9.3 in March alongside the new 4-inch iPhone 5SE, iPad Air 3 and the updated Apple Watch. The list of improvements and enhancements includes bug fixes and refinements to the features added in previous betas. These features include the Night Shift mode, secure Notes, updated News and CarPlay. iOS 9.3 Beta 2 brought a separate Control Center toggle for Night Shift, which is present in the third beta, so looks like the change is permanent.
It is Sunday today, which means it’s high time I told you about the most interesting posts of the last seven days. Most of the articles this week deal with Apple’s upcoming media event scheduled for March 15th as well as with the 4-inch iPhone 5SE, iPad Air 3 and the updated Apple Watch that are expected to be unveiled at this event. There are also several posts connected with the iPhone 7 and its tech specs as well as with the untethered jailbreak of iOS 9.2.1 and iOS 9.3 Beta.
Contrary to the latest rumors suggesting that the long-awaited 4-inch iPhone 5SE will come in three colors, namely, in Silver, Space Gray, and Pink, a new report from 9to5Mac reporters indicates that the handset will be released in Silver, Space Gray, Gold, and Rose Gold colors. These colors will match the look of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s lineup, so looks like the information is trustworthy.
According to the latest report from Macotakara reporters, the long-awaited 4-inch iPhone 5SE will come in three colors, namely, Silver, Space Gray, and Pink. Moreover, sources add, the Pink color will be closer to the shade of the iPad nano 7G and iPod touch 6G, but not to the Rose Gold color of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s.
Earlier this year, iPhone 6 users have begun complaining about a rather strange problem. According to the most recent complaints, the iPhone 6 units with Touch ID home buttons repaired by third-party companies can become unresponsive or broken for good after the software update. A number of users have seen the ‘error 53’ immediately after the update to a newer iOS version. One of such users was a Guardian freelance photographer.
According to the latest report based on the data from a research firm Mixpanel, about 32% of current iPhone users still have handsets with 4-inch screens. This means that three 4-inch iPhone model, namely, iPhone 5, iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s are still very popular devices.
Apple will soon launch two new initiatives aimed at making the existing Apple Store Reuse and Recycle iPhone trade-in program more flexible. According to reliable sources, Apple will soon start accepting the iPhones with damaged screens, broken buttons and cameras and change these devices for discounts. The second initiative is connected with the possibility to install screen protectors on iPhones in the Apple Stores. Launching these two initiatives, Apple hopes to boost iPhone upgrades.
According to the latest report from people familiar with the matter, the long-awaited iPhone 7 will feature a new design. MacRumors reporters, who cite reliable insiders, claim that the handset will get two noticeable differences. While the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s both have a protruding rear camera, the next generation handset will likely get a flush one. This will be a usual camera, not the dual one, sources add. However, chances are, the larger iPhone 7 Plus will get a dual-lens camera. The second major difference in design is the absence of traditional antenna bands across the rear panel.
As noted by several reliable news websites, the media event dedicated to the new 4-inch iPhone 5SE, iPad Air 3 and the updated Apple Watch will take place on March 15th. This date may change, sources believe, as Apple hasn’t yet confirmed the schedule for the upcoming event.
According to the latest report from Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster, in March Apple may release an ‘S’ version of the Apple Watch that would feature a better processor and battery. In terms of design, the wearable device will remain similar to the current model, the expert believes.
As it was already reported, Apple may launch the iPad Air 3 in March. The device will likely feature a faster processor, 4GB of RAM, LED flash on the back panel as well as four speakers at the top and bottom. Several images showing something similar to the case for the upcoming gadget confirm the rumors about four integrated speakers and rear facing LED flash. The leaked photos first published by usually-reliable French website Nowhereelse.fr are available below, take a look.

Nearly all articles this week deal with the upcoming 4-inch iPhone called iPhone 5SE and its tech specs. Apart from that, there’re posts that tell us about the iPad Air 3 that is expected to be unveiled in March alongside the aforementioned iPhone as well as the updated Apple Watch. Of course, you can find other articles worth your attention, so make sure you take a look at the list below.
Apple is reportedly working on an iPhone supporting wireless charging.

The rumor comes from Bloomberg, so it is worth relying on.
According to the latest report from reliable reporters, Apple will start the production of updated 12-inch and 13.3-inch MacBook models either at the end of the first, or in the second calendar quarter of 2016. As to the 15-inch MacBook lineup, it will go into production in the third quarter of this year, sources claim. Unfortunately, the tech specs of the upcoming laptops remain unknown. All we know is that the devices should be equipped with new Skylake processors and possibly Thunderbolt 3 with USB-C.
According to a new report from Nikkei, the long-awaited 4-inch iPhone called the iPhone 5SE (or the iPhone 6c) is already being produced by Apple suppliers. The same report suggests that the handset will be targeted at emerging markets.
