Owners of older devices can now disable a feature that slows down their iPhone to prevent a sudden shutdown.
The feature is the result of the bad press that Apple witnessed after it was discovered that the system automatically slows down the processor's performance to avoid unexpected shutdowns. If you have AppleCare or you're within your one-year warranty, Apple will replace your battery for free. After installing the update, head over to Settings Battery Battery Health to see if the slowdown feature is enabled on your iPhone 6, 6 Plus, SE, 6s, 6s Plus, 7, or 7 Plus. The data includes a Maximum Capacity reading for the battery and a label to convey when the battery isn't capable of peak performance and requires service. While searching for business in Maps, Safari, Search or Siri on iPhone and iPad, users will see the option to contact business using Messages or make a purchase using Apply Pay. Featured videos and a "Watch Now" sub category also appear in the top carousel. Apart from that, Business Chat is also rolling out to users, which is pretty similar to WhatsApp Business and is expected to be used by companies to reach out to their users.More news: IOS 11.3 Released, Introduces New Tool To Stop Performance Throttling
You can now store your medical records on your iPhone.
Apart from this, the iPhone maker has also introduced a Health Records section inside the Health app, giving patients quick access to their medical records from supported doctors and care centers directly on their device. The idea is that you can access all of your health information - like medication lists and lab test results - securely, right from your phone. The feature only connects to select hospitals at the moment.More news: We finally know why cracking knuckles makes noise
With the iOS 11.3, Apple has delivered on that promise. iOS 11.3 adds new features to show battery health of an iPhone and recommend if a battery needs to be serviced.
The update also introduces a number of new features including new Animoji for iPhone X users, Business Chat for iMessage in the United States, new Health Records features in Health, and some standard bug fixes and performance improvements. But let's be honest, it's the thing most people will probably test first.More news: Palestinians slam U.S. diplomat's remarks on peace talks
