Apple iOS 11.3 adds health records for battery, people too

The ARKit developer framework has been upgraded in iOS 11.3, and improvements are impressive, especially considering how recently version 1.0 launched.

Apple on Thursday released iOS 11.3, which, perhaps most notably, lets you switch off its controversial slowdown feature and see a breakdown of your battery's health, so you'll know whether it needs to be serviced.

The iOS Health app has gained a Health Records section, through which patients of nearly participating 40 health care institutions in the USA can view their health records. The feature will include battery health, battery degradation, and performance analysis of battery. Thanks to Health Records, information regarding immunizations, medications, procedures, allergies, and more will be stored in one location. You can now centralize all your health records in the app. With iOS 11.3, users can completely disable the throttling and get more insights into their battery health to find out if a battery replacement is required.

Now, a new function included in the company's upcoming operating system, iOS 11.3, will allow you to de-throttle your phone if you so choose. Furthermore, Apple is expanding their privacy features by displaying a new privacy icon whenever Apple asks you to login or provide other sensitive information. It could potentially be a good segue to Apple's slate of original programming we've heard so much about, which could be coming out as soon as this time next year. Unlike Facebook or Google, Apple's business model isn't primarily based on collecting data about its users to serve advertisements, though it does show targeted ads in places like the App Store.
