Apple releases iOS 11.3


Apple on Thursday released iOS 11.3, which, perhaps most notably, lets you switch off its controversial slowdown feature and see a breakdown of your battery's health, so you'll know whether it needs to be serviced.

This update is expected to solve lots of existing iOS 11 bugs and bring new features. That's likely a not-so-subtle dig at the current most popular music video platform: YouTube.

Messages in iCloud is finally available in iOS 11.3. A new privacy icon and detailed privacy information will appear whenever Apple asks for access to personal information to enable features, secure Apple services or personalise an iOS experience.

Other iOS 11.3 features include four new Animojis (a lion, bear, dragon and skull, specifically) as well as improved ARKit functionality allowing for the placement of virtual objects on vertical surfaces such as walls or windows.

The new Health Records feature, meanwhile, let patients of more than 40 health systems including Duke, NYU Langone, Stanford and Yale view their medical records from multiple institutions right from their iPhone.

Using advanced computer vision techniques to find and recognise the position of 2D images such as signs, posters and artwork, ARKit can integrate these real world images into AR experiences such as filling a museum with interactive exhibits or bringing a movie poster to life.

Inside Apple Music's Browse screen there's a new section: Music Videos.

Just be sure to have your credit card handy before you dive in - to watch any of the new music videos, you need to be an Apple Music subscriber. Before the update, the medical records section of the app was only available to the people who had signed up to test a pre-release version. The idea here with Apple is that multiple systems are collected into a single app.
