Apple has released iOS 9.3 update to developers today, meaning it is time again to find out what is new in this software update for iOS devices. Unlike the previous iOS update, 9.3 includes some new features for Apple’s CarPlay with some improved updates to Apple’s stock apps, namely Apple Music and Apple Maps apps.

The Apple Music app now features ‘New’ and ‘For You’ sections, allowing subscribers to find new music, handpicked from experts and selections based on your preferences.

Apple Maps now has a new ‘Nearby’ feature, which allows you to easily find petrol, parking, restaurants, coffee shops and much more with a single tap. After installing this update I found that the iOS 9.3 Maps: Nearby feature is limited to 6 countries: US, Canada, Australia, China, France and Germany.
