Apple releases iOS 11.3 update with new Animoji and Battery Health feature

Apple releases iOS 11.3 update with new Animoji and Battery Health feature

The new performance management deature will default to off when devices update to iOS 11.3, according to Apple support, though it will turn back on if there is a subsequent unexpected shutdown.

This is turning out to be a big week for Apple, because just two days after unveiling a new iPad, the Cupertino company has also released a major software update. The company realizes the importance of the cure on bugs in the iOS 11.3, and it is an advantage for the company that they are getting an opportunity to offer the solution. Developers can now allow on-screen objects to interact with vertical surfaces in the real world, instead of only horizontal surfaces like desks and floors.

According to Apple, this privacy feature has been in the works for months, mostly in response to the EU's new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that is in effect starting May 25th. This feature can be found in Settings - Battery and is available for iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

In the U.S. and Canada, Apple has rolled out Business Chat to let the users communicate directly with businesses, use Apple Pay, get more information, etc. The new menu, which launches in beta, not only shows you how significantly your iPhone's battery has degraded since you bought it, but also lets you opt out of throttling processing power to extend longevity on a charge. Rest assured that many are working on bringing a fully unlocked operating system that is as up to date as possible, however, so it hopefully won't be too long until we see the operating system cracked - provided progress continues as expected. 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 personalize an iOS experience.

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

Four new Animoji for iPhone X users join the existing roster of twelve: lion, dragon, skull, and bear. Henceforth, the tech giant is experiencing the pressure related to the update of iOS 11.3. Once this has been done, open the Home app on your device and tap the Location arrow in the upper right hand corner which will give you the option to select Software Update. Once you're there, your smartphone will start checking for updates.

Apple has made good on Cook's promise with iOS 11.3. As Apple has just released the updates, don't get disheartened if you don't see the update; it should be available on your phone in next few days.
