Apple adds new features to show battery health


iOS 11.3 adds new features to show battery health and recommend if a battery needs to be serviced.

The stable update will be available for iPhone 5s and later, iPad Air and iPad Pro, iPad 5th generation, iPad mini 2 and later and iPod touch 6th generation. Users can now turn the throttling feature off and take a better look at the battery's health via its settings.

The Messages in iCloud helps the Apple users to have free space on their iPhone by keeping their photos and other attachment in iCloud. Among the companies that will support Business Chat when it comes out are Discover, Hilton, Lowe's, and Wells Fargo.

Apple also revealed that the iOS 11.3 update will bring Health Records to the Health App.

The update will also include a new Business Chat feature, which the firm says enables users to communicate directly with businesses from within the Messages app.

The updated platform consists of the ability to identify objects on vertical surfaces like walls, circular tables or anywhere else.

"The view of the real world through the camera now has 50 per cent greater resolution and supports auto-focus for an even sharper perspective".

iPhone and iPad users will also find it easier to access medical data from participating healthcare organizations. Apple ensures that the Health Records data will be encrypted and protected with a passcode. The Tim Cook-led company has chose to offer a preview of what will arrive in the latest version of its mobile operating system. This feature which was introduced in iOS 10.2.1 manages "maximum performance to prevent unexpected shutdowns". It's been a huge source of controversy for the brand, and this update is meant to allow users of the iPhone 6 and above to choose between longer battery life at reduced performance or shorter battery life at full performance. Additionally, Apple has also hinted that the multi-room support will be coming to HomePod and will launch alongside peer-to-peer AirPlay streaming. Apple made failed attempt to justify the move by stating that it was necessary to save ageing batteries. iPhone users, however, were not looking so convinced. With this new feature, which is also coming to macOS, Apple will display a privacy icon when an Apple app or feature requests to use a person's information. So far, only the first beta has been released to developers, not the general public, so you should expect the release of the new version only after March 2018. On iOS 11, the prompt would say "Double Click to Install" in the upper-right corner, once done the Face ID process would fire up.
