New for iOS 11.3: Battery Health, Throttling Settings and Animoji

This feature can be found in Settings - Battery and is available for iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Apple adds that the improved ARKit will be able to better recognise irregular shaped surfaces, such as circular tables.

Apple News also comes with a set of new features for videos.

Apple announced iOS 11.3 on Wednesday, the update that will roll out this spring and let users take more control over whether or not Apple slows down an iPhone's battery. Apple has referred to it as a "power management feature". The update includes new augmented-reality capabilities, more information about your phone's battery, a new health records feature, and four new Animojis.

"About a year ago, we released some code that essentially what it does is, all batteries age over time, and they become unhealthy at a point in time".

HomeKit software authentication is coming, allowing developers to add HomeKit support to existing accessories while protecting privacy and security (this could be huge if it's easy for third-party developer to integrate).

iOS 11.3 Beta: The first beta of iOS 11.3 is now available for download, reports MacRumors.

Apple said it today introduced a significant update to the Health app with the iOS 11.3 beta, debuting a feature for customers to see their medical records right on their iPhone.

Health Records are also coming to help you keep track of medical data from multiple institutions in one place, as well as receive "regular" notifications for lab results and recommended medications.

Depending on your interest in AR experience, the arrival of ARKit 1.5 might be the highlight of iOS 11.3.

Apple is making some improvements to its ARKit augmented reality platform as well, which it launched in the fall with iOS 11.

The new updates introduced through the in OS 11.3 beta will try to address users' complaints.

Apple says that iOS 11.3 will give users a menu where they can check the status of their battery and disable the performance throttling, if the feature is active. Business Chat allows users to easily communicate with businesses, although not a lot of companies are in it yet. The information is encrypted and protected with a passcode. The biggest change, though, is the ability to turn 2D objects like signs, posters, and artwork into AR experiences This means, the release said, that a movie poster could be turned into an interactive ad, for example.
