IOS 11.3 to bring battery health status, new Animoji and more

Apple made a big announcement this week in the health space, saying that it would add an iPhone feature allowing users to see medical records.

Apple has been developing four next-generation iPhone projects: a 5.7- to 5.8-inch LCD device; a 6.0- to 6.1-inch LCD device; a 6.0- to 6.1-inch OLED device; and a 6.4- to 6.5-inch OLED device, according to Digitimes Research senior analyst Luke Lin.

Apple is embracing the trend to update its iOS regularly and has revealed some new features coming to iOS 11.3.

Users would also be able to see if the power management feature that prevents unexpected shutdowns is on and can choose to turn it off.

In a somewhat controversial move, Apple is adding a new health records feature to iOS Health app.

The tvOS 11.3 public beta can be obtained by going to the Settings app on Apple TV, navigating to "System", then to "Software Updates", followed by toggling on "Get Public Beta Updates". So, Apple can make its devices more popular by focusing on the health features, something which it is already doing.

The company has released the developer preview of iOS 11.3 to members of the iOS Developer Program.

Many people believed Apple was purposefully undermining the performance of older iPhones to drive sales of its newer and more expensive devices.

The removal of the home button on the iPhone X provided a bit of foreshadowing for not just the 2018 iPhone lineup, but the iPad Pro as well.

With Business Chat, consumers can conduct a conversation with a company representative, schedule an appointment or make purchases using Apple Pay in the messages app. Business Chat doesn't share the user's contact information with businesses, Apple stated, and users can exit a chat at any time. It's too early to say if the iPad Pro will have the same "notch" design as the iPhone X to house the True Depth camera system, but Twitter user CarlosDLGuerra has produced a render to show what an iPad Pro with Face ID would look like.

The iOS 11.3 update will also introduce a handful of new Animoji for the iPhone X. The software update will bring a dragon, bear, skull, and lion to the existing characters.

Starting on February 9, a new feature will be available - HomePod.
