Apple Spotlights Key iOS 11.3 Features

Apple Spotlights Key iOS 11.3 Features”

Business Chat is a new way for users to communicate directly with companies via messages, Apple noted.

Besides giving people more control over the operation of older iPhones, the upcoming update dubbed iOS 11.3 will also show how well the device's battery is holding up.

Apple noted that the new chat feature "doesn't share the user's contact information with businesses and gives users the ability to stop chatting at any time". Currently, most of the healthcare systems operate on different IT standards, resulting in a mismatch or incomplete patient EHRs (electronic health records).

Apple first announced AirPlay 2 at the Worldwide Developers Conference last September.

It's possible that Apple could be working on a brand new iPad with similar features to that of the iPhone X. Spotted by Felipe Esposito of iHelp, iOS 11.3 includes multiple strings of code that make reference to a "modern iPad".

Software authentication will finally be allowed for HomeKit devices, which we mistakenly thought was included with iOS 11.0 (see "A Prairie HomeKit Companion: What's Coming in iOS 11", 7 July 2017).

The update has added four Animoji characters to the 12 already available. Finally, support for Advanced Mobile Location (AML) to automatically send a user's current location when making a call to emergency services will be rolled out in countries where AML is supported.

If you're a member of the beta-access programme, you can download the work-in-progress software here.

Apple's new health app will help users access medical records on iPhones

Apple has also revealed that Apple Music is expanding to music videos and Apple News to news videos. You can let them look at your phone screen, which might not exactly be convenient.

Apple has previewed the features and more about the future update of iOS. The new iOS 11.3 update will be compatible with the following iOS devices.

There are a huge number of scenarios in which this is useful and even life-saving, but now, AML is only supported in the UK, Belgium, New Zealand, Sweden, Lithuania, and various parts of Austria.

Interestingly, all Android smartphones on the Gingerbread version of its operating system (launched 2010) and later have been capable of doing this since July 2016.

"Giving consumers easy access to their personal health data whenever and wherever they access health care services is not only personally empowering - it will make for better health care", Dr. Stephen R.T. Evans, MedStar's executive vice president for Medical Affairs and chief medical officer, said in a statement.

The iBooks app has been renamed to just Books, leading to speculation that iBook could be used again for an Apple hardware product. Reportedly, the iBooks Store will also become the Apple Books Store. The idea is that your iMessages will be stored in iCloud and thus sync seamlessly between devices.

In a somewhat controversial move, Apple is adding a new health records feature to iOS Health app.

Apple hasn't confirmed an accurate release date for iOS 11.3.
