Apple's latest software update lets you disable tool that slows down iPhones

iOS 11.3 preview doesn't include any iPad specific features Apple wants you to put your medical records on the iPhone
| 26 January, 2018, 02:57

There's a new update en route to iOS - and it's set to bundle a number of much-requested changes, including the option to disable the controversial processor throttling feature that's was uncovered on older iPhones. Though it'll be available in the public release, Apple hasn't added it to the beta version of iOS 11.3 yet.

Apple has detailed the upcoming iOS 11.3 operating system for the iPhone, and yes, it includes the expected-battery health and power management features.

iPhone and iPad users can expect a richer experience with their devices thanks to the new iOS 11.3's augmented reality and Animoji features.

iOS 11.3 introduces four new Animoji, giving iPhone X users the ability to express themselves as a lion, bear, dragon or skull. "Health Records data is encrypted and protected with a passcode", the company revealed.

Business Chat is a new way for users to communicate directly with businesses right within Messages.

Apple's anti-battery-throttling software update for iPhone is (almost) here

A developer preview of iOS 11.3 is available from 24 January.

A major feature will be to show battery health and recommend when a battery needs to be serviced. The promised power management for worn out batteries will be there, along with new Animoji characters, Health Records management, and more.

iOS 11.3 will bring with it new features in response to the recent news that Apple slowed performance on older iPhones with aging batteries.

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.

The introduction of iOS 11.3 this spring will bring iPhone and iPad users a way to interact with businesses within Messages, more immersive AR experiences, new Animoji, health records, and more. It would have a total of sixteen new Animojis with the addition of these new four Animoji included to the already present Animojis in the iPhone X-which are fourteen. Just like with the iOS 11.3 beta, the tvOS 11.3 is now on up for grab if you are a developer. With this, ARKit will now be able to place objects on vertical surfaces and "more accurately map irregularly shaped surfaces". There's also the ability to use the multi-room audio feature of AirPlay 2 to play back audio to multiple Apple TV devices in multiple locations. Given how new the units on the market are, Apple likely sees no reason to enable such a feature on these models - at least not yet.
