Rolled out with iOS 10.2.1, that feature automatically and dynamically slows down processor performance to smooth out peak power demands in devices with older batteries.

Apple announced an upcoming update of its iOS that will allow iPhone users to disable the power management system created to compensate for ageing batteries. Specifically, the update will show battery health and recommend if the battery needs to be services. iOS will also show if Apple's performance management feature is on and allow users to disable it. The four new Animoji that are set to join the iPhone X's current colourful cast of 12 furry creatures include a lion, a bear, a skeleton, and a dragon.

The iOS 11.3 update is available for developers now and will be available in beta form for anyone who wants to get the features early at a slightly later date.

Apple shall push iOS 11.3 beta 1 today to developer and public beta testers.

In a somewhat surprising move, Apple has chose to announce iOS 11.3 in the form of a press release to let everyone know what it's been up to. These will be available on the iPhone X, which is powered by the A11 Bionic chip and the TrueDepth camera. - The new update will also add a new Health Records feature to the iOS Health app in the United Sates to make it easier to access and control health records and data.

He recently stepped down from his role for what he claims are unrelated reasons, although he remains a member of the party. It appears he had only recently converted to Islam, and he resigned from his position on January 11 for "private reasons".

Apple's iOS 11.3 upgrade will also have a feature called Health Records, a one-stop-shop for iPhone owners to view their collective health data from participating medical providers. Apple says Business Chat will not share a user's personal contact information with companies and lets users end the chat at any time. This is said to come with the support of Discover, Hilton, Lowe's and Wells Fargo at this stage.

But perhaps the biggest change is the much-needed power management feature to the battery settings in iOS 11.3.

The new over-the-air (OTA) update will bring new Animoji, an improved Health, Battery, and Messages app. Users will be able to stream these videos without any ads, a move that could give Apple an edge over the popular video sharing platform YouTube. You can chat with a representative, make an appointment and even make a purchase with Apple Pay.

Other new features arriving in iOS 11.3 include a music video home in Apple Music, a Video group in For You in Apple News, and more.
