After facing flak over the revelation that it was purposefully slowing down iPhones to save battery life, Apple has released iOS 11.3 update that gives users more power over battery performance.

The iOS 11.3 has added new features to show battery health of an iPhone or iPad and recommend if a battery needs to be serviced.

These can be found in Settings - Battery and are available for iPhone 6 and later.

The new update has a "Health Records" feature that lets patients select from several health institutions to access medical information.


The new ‘Health Records' feature helps 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, Apple said.

"Health Records" data is encrypted and protected with a passcode.

iOS 11.3 also make it easier to understand how personal data may be used. In addition to that, the new iOS 11 version delivers new immersive augmented reality (AR) experiences, new Animoji for iPhone X users, access to personal health records in the Health app and more.

A new "Business Chat" feature lets users communicate directly with businesses right within the Messages app. Business Chat" will be available in beta in the US and top businesses in retail, finance and hospitality will begin rolling out this new messaging feature for customers.

Apple Music will now streams music videos uninterrupted by ads.

These features were first revealed in January this year but it seems Apple has taken its time to fix the issues, before releasing it for all. AR has been emphasised by Apple with this version, and it’ll get further highlighted in the coming iOS iterations.
