Apple so as to add battery options after slowdown fiasco

Share

Well, as you may recall, Apple recently came under fire for deliberately slowing down iPhones in order to preserve battery life over time. In addition to horizontal surfaces like tables and chairs, ARKit can now recognize and place virtual objects on vertical surfaces like walls and doors, and can more accurately map irregularly shaped surfaces like circular tables.

Users will also be able to view their own health records within the Health app, depending on the information participating health institutions have shared, and receive updates from test results, conditions and changes in medication. Back at WWDC 2017, Apple announced that the sync feature would launch with iOS 11.

With iOS 11.3, however, Apple has added a new prompt that appears before the Face ID process begins. Hilton, Lowe's, Discover and Wells Fargo are among the first crop of companies testing the feature. The information is encrypted and protected with a passcode. Microsoft recently dropped support for HealthVault Insights apps on mobile platforms, but it's still allowing users to access their data via the HealthVault website.

Apple surprised us earlier today, January 24, by offering a preview of the upcoming iOS 11.3 release.

The tech giant said its update includes a new way to "show battery health and recommend if a battery needs to be serviced".

The satellites are an Earth-imaging satellite for Planet, and two Lemur-2 satellites for Spire, for weather and ship tracking. Its smaller size is meant to increase affordability and launch flexibility for customers with smaller payloads.

Additionally, users can now see if the power management feature that dynamically manages maximum performance to prevent unexpected shutdowns, first introduced in iOS 10.2.1, is on and can choose to turn it off.

If the company follows a similar pattern, iOS 11.3 could stay in beta until March rolls around. Apple is rolling out four new Animoji: a lion, a bear, a dragon, and a skull.

The new version is available on Apple's developer center and is rolling out to all users now.

Apple's now on its first iOS 11.3 beta which means we probably have a long way to go before the update officially arrives for iPhone and iPad models around the world.
