Apple iOS 11.3 is now ready for download; here's what's new

With iOS 11.3, your iPhone camera will be able to recognise and place virtual objects onto vertical surfaces like walls and doors. Available in the Messages app, the bear, dragon, skull and sullen lion characters mimic your face movements and record your voice.

The Battery Health tool, which is now available in the operating system's beta release, will tell you how well your battery functions and whether the speed-slowing power management feature has been activated on your device, according to an announcement from Apple.

Apple's new web-based privacy options will be released for users in Europe in early May, while the features will come to other countries later.

The update also introduces a number of new features including new Animoji for iPhone X users, Business Chat for iMessage in the United States, new Health Records features in Health, and some standard bug fixes and performance improvements.

The feature acts as a home for music videos for Apple Music subscribers, aggregating the best and most recent video content.

The new Health Records feature let patients of more than 40 health systems view their medical records from multiple institutions right from their iPhone.

The iPhone battery slow down feature wasn't really much of a feature at all.

It will contain info about any allergies you have, immunisations you've received and even medical lab results.

Second wave of the flu could target children
Among 26,694 total hospitalizations reported , almost 78 percent were associated with influenza A virus. Influenza B's tendency to affect children more severely makes a late-season outbreak highly concerning.

On the privacy front, the update introduces a new icon-two blue people shaking hands-which will appear "whenever Apple asks for access to personal information to enable features, secure Apple services, or personalize an iOS experience", the company explained in a news release.

Customers with the new iPad can download iOS 11.3 over-the-air using the Settings app.

Apple recently admitted it uses a "power management" feature to slow down processors used in iPhones with degraded batteries.

To kick off the music video binge-watching, today Apple Music premiered new videos from A Tribe Called Quest, Beck, Kylie Minogue, Sabrina Carpenter, and Jonas Blue, and a live performance music video from emerging artist YEBBA.

But you'll also be able to schedule appointments and make Apple Pay purchases with it too.

In iOS 11.3, you can get a podcast playing simply by tapping on it; previously, you would need to tap once to load the episode's detail view, then tap the play button from there.

To turn it off, just go to Settings Battery on any phone model between the iPhone 6 and iPhone 7 Plus. Apple doesn't now offer a privacy hub where users can download data and correct information, so this is a welcome addition (even if Apple had to be pushed into doing it).
