Apple releases the first watchOS 4.3 developer beta

Apple releases the first watchOS 4.3 developer beta

Apple released the first iOS 11.3 public beta on Thursday, just a day after releasing developer beta 1.

The beta testers will also receive four new Animoji available for iPhone X. The Health app will have a new feature where users can store their medical records.

iOS 11.3 will not only allow users to check to see if the so-called "power management feature" that limits the maximum power output to prevent unexpected shutdowns is enabled, but will also let them to switch it off.

The iOS 11.3 update will also introduce a handful of new Animoji for the iPhone X. The software update will bring a dragon, bear, skull, and lion to the existing characters.

The next question is at what point, if any, do Apple inform the user that their battery condition has changed state? However, the option to disable the performance throttling on older iPhones is not made available via this first public beta. It's an update of a less sophisticated medical records function in Apple's Health app. It uses the phone's Face ID hardware face-scanning features to create custom 3D versions of emoji based on facial expressions. This collates available medical data from multiple providers - including hospitals and clinics - to let you see your information in one place. Apple said it expects to add more medical systems in the next few months. On the iPhone 6 and later, you will be able to view your battery's health in Settings Battery. Working on this same principle, Apple is now making it possible to access your health records from your iPhone.

Other hospitals already on board with the Health Records app include Geisinger Health System, UC San Diego Health, and Dignity Health. Some health systems offer apps where people can access lab results, message their doctors or make appointments. "Patients will get notified via an alert if new information becomes available". Even with the close family ties between macOS and iOS, it is not as straightforward as you would think.

Another feature that will be present in iOS 11.3 is Advanced Mobile Location, which allows first responders to locate someone within a few inches using a combination of WiFi, cellular signals and Global Positioning System.

Apple Music subscribers might be pleased to find out that they will also be able to watch music videos on the streaming service. "Apple is uniquely positioned to help scale adoption because they have both a secure and trusted platform and have adopted the latest industry open standards at a time when the industry is well positioned to respond", Cedars-Sinai CIO Darren Dworkin said in prepared remarks.

Apple News will have a video section in For You, and it will sport an improved Top Stories section.
