Apple iOS 11.3 adds health records for battery, people too

  • Apple releases watchOS 4.3 with iPhone and HomePod music control, and more

Apple is also improving security and privacy with iOS 11.3 and macOS 10.13.4, making it easier for users to understand how their personal data is being used whenever using an Apple-specific feature.

Now, a new function included in the company's upcoming operating system, iOS 11.3, will allow you to de-throttle your phone if you so choose.

A mismatch in power demand and supply can prompt an iPhone to shut down, so to guard against that, Apple secretly slowed its processors in older model iPhones to accommodate enfeebled batteries.

If you forgot about Animjois, today is your lucky day as Apple is adding four new Animojis - a dragon, a bear, a lion and a skull.

Apple's new web-based privacy options will be released for users in Europe in early May, while the features will come to other countries later. The feature had been present throughout the entire beta program for iOS 11.3. The company says the view of physical reality through the camera (in an AR application, we presume) has 50% better resolution and supports auto-focus.

Another new feature called Business Chat will let you communicate with companies via the Messages app on your iPhone or iPad.

That story arc may as well be ripped from real life, because the real Roseanne , too, voted for Trump. "I'm still the same, you all moved", she said.


Users are always in control of whether they share any contact information with a business on Business Chat. And users can stop chatting with the businesses at any time.

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.

You'll also be able to store records from your doctor or hospital on the upgraded Health app.

As part of their latest software update, Apple will start showing users an icon that indicates when one of the company's features is seeking access to personal information. That solution has finally arrived now that the final version of iOS 11.3 has been publicly released.

In order to see if your device is being throttled, you can take a look at the iPhone battery slow down feature introduced in iOS 11.3, and disable the throttling if it's already turned on.

Users will be able to find the new feature by opening their Settings app, selecting the Battery menu and opening Battery Health (Beta). In case of the latter situation, users will be given the option to either limit the performance of their iPhone to ensure glitch-free performance, or leave their iPhone performing as good they can with the possibilities of random shutdowns.
