Apple to introduce web-based feature to allow…

The update introduces a new "Battery Health" feature that's created to provide iOS users with more information about their batteries, and it is a function Apple promised to introduce following backlash over the power management features added to older iPhones, Mac Rumours reported.

"With iOS 11.3, apps can now deliver AR experiences that use vertical surfaces like walls and doors, in addition to horizontal surfaces like tables and chairs, and more accurately map to irregularly shaped surfaces like circular tables", Apple explained.

Apple users will also be able to correct personal information that is inaccurate, temporarily deactivate their account or delete their account altogether.

Much like Facebook Messenger, which has been enticing businesses for years, Apple's new service lets users chat directly with companies using iMessage.

Deleting an Apple account will take seven days under the new system.

iOS 11.3 adds new features to show battery health of an iPhone and recommend if a battery needs to be serviced. This can be found in Settings Battery Battery Health (beta) and is available for iPhone 6 and later.

Since we mentioned the iPhone X, the iOS 11.3 update brings four new Animoji characters - a lion, bear, dragon, and skull.

The update also makes the performance management feature that curtails power usage visible, but only after an unexpected shutdown occurs - it's initially disabled when the update is installed - and only on the older iPhone models affected (iPhone 6, 7, and SE). This communication will happen in your Messages app. Think of it as a text-based customer support over which you have complete control.

The update brings support for Business Chat within Apple's Message app. Business Chat provides API hooks into customer service platforms like LivePerson, Salesforce, Nuance, Genesys, InTheChat and Zendesk.

Once you've started a thread, you can ask questions or make purchases using Apple Pay.

This feature is more relevant to the USA market users.

On Thursday Apple released iOS 11.3, a free update to its mobile operating system that, among other new features and fixes, attempts to ease iPhone battery management. With the inclusion of these new institutions, patients have greater access to their medical information including lab results, medications, conditions and more.

Apple says doctors are putting patients in charge with its health record feature.

Apple Music now streams music videos uninterrupted by ads. These markets join Apple TV app users in the US, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Norway, Sweden and the UK.

Along with the major updates above, Apple has also added some minor features to iOS 11.3.
