This updated version of iOS adds new Animoji to the iPhone X, improves ARKit's ability to recognize surfaces and also adds the ability to turn processor throttling off for iPhones with older batteries.

First of all, the iOS 11.3 update comes with a new Battery Health feature, located in Settings.

The new feature allows users to check battery health of their iPhone and will recommend users if a battery needs to be serviced. Additionally, users can now see if the power management feature that dynamically manages maximum performance to prevent unexpected shutdowns. Of course, the "Plus" variants of these smartphones are also included. According to Masri, this vulnerability might prove useless in the end but, on the other hand, if exploited properly by devs it could open the roads to iOS 11.3 Jailbreak. The updated version of the power management option is now available only on select models including iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. It will give a note that performance has been applied to prevent this from happening again.

Like Facebook Messenger, iMessage is gaining the capability to let users talk with businesses. Apple explains this as a measure of battery capacity relative to when it was new.

Then, to look at your iPhone's battery health, go to Settings Battery Battery Health (Beta). "As it ages, it becomes less capable of delivering peak loads, especially when the charge is low". In usual cases, a battery is created to retain up to 80 percent of its original capacity after 500 complete charge cycles.

With iOS 11.3, you'll be able to turn this off - you should see a performance boost, but it may damage the overall long-term health of your battery.

The update also brings more accurate mapping for surfaces that are irregular, such as round tables, and more advanced computer vision to locate 2D items like signs. The bug, as found by Infosec, seems to be in the camera app on iOS 11 and later versions.

This will only be available if you've got a participating medical institution on board.
