IOS 11 vs iOS 10: What's New in iOS 11.3

Emilia Clarke...'the mother of dragons

The move is Apple's latest attempt to quell a major controversy that erupted late previous year when it was discovered that the company handcuffs the performance of older iPhones to prevent unexpected shutdowns when the battery can no longer reliably support maximum phone performance.

The change will come as part of an iOS 11.3 software update, which will be released in the southern hemisphere autumn for consumers and was released on Wednesday as a test for developers.

Apple says the two new battery and performance features will be added in a later iOS 11.3 beta release, and aren't available in today's developer preview. Essentially, if the battery in your iOS device is aging, the operating system would automatically slow performance down; Apple explained this was a measure to prevent unexpected reboots and freezes. Though first released with iOS 10.2.1, this is the first time users can see the feature in action via the Settings app.

Apple is giving just what they asked for with battery management in iOS 11.3.

Apple confirmed in December that software in its iPhone 6, 6s and SE models, which deals with dangers from ageing batteries, could slow down the phone's performance.

The idea is to keep things transparent with their customers and "this is something that has not been done before", Cook added. Users will also be able to decide whether they would like their iPhones to slow down and save battery life.

Another new feature arriving for iPhone and iPad customers this spring is Business Chat.

Next, Business Chat will let you message businesses directly for things like support, scheduling appointments, and paying for purchases with. Apple says Messages will support Business Chats, allowing businesses to communicate directly with users. The feature is meant to help users see all their available medical data from multiple providers. The promised power management for worn out batteries will be there, along with new Animoji characters, Health Records management, and more.

In addition, Apple is expanding its Health app to show your actual health records from participating hospital and clinics. Now iPhone X users who install the new update can access a dragon, bear, skeleton and lion Animojis. ARKit now only lets you place objects on horizontal surfaces such as tables and floors.

Apple had introduced the ARKit platform to bring OS-level support for Augmented Reality applications and services.

There's also Health Records in the Health app, music videos in Apple Music, a new Video group in For You in Apple News, HomeKit authentication and support for Advanced Mobile Location, which is created to automatically send the user's location when they get in touch with emergency services in supported markets.
