For the second time this week, Apple has released a new iOS beta software version. Registered developers can now download iOS 11.3 beta 6.
A new Health Records feature is included in iOS 11.3.
We’ll let you know if we find any notable additions in the new beta version just released.
Probably the biggest feature in iOS 11.3 is a new battery health feature.
Available by going to Settings > Battery > Battery Health, the section provides a look at the current maximum capacity of your battery relative to when it was new. It also will let you know if the battery is currently supporting peak performance capability. Anyone with an iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus can disable the power management option designed to prevent unexpected shutdowns as a battery ages.
Another new addition is the return of Messages in iCloud.
With the feature, users can see all of the conversations synced between iOS devices and their Mac using iCloud. For example, when a message is deleted on an iPhone, it will automatically disappear on an iPad.
Anyone with an iPhone X can take advantage of four new Animoji – a lion, bear, dragon, and skull.
Apple is also adding a new Health Records feature for hospitals and clinics that will allow consumers to see their available medical data in the Health app. Patients from participating providers will view lab results, medications, conditions, and more. Health Records data is encrypted and protected with a passcode.
Other changes include improvements in ARKit and a Business Chat in iMessage.
Expect the software to officially land soon, especially with Apple’s just announced media event later this month.
