iOS 11.3: Top Five Features
Apple is expected to release the iOS 11.3 update for compatible iPads and iPhones in the next few days. This will be one of the biggest software updates, after iOS 11.2, which introduced Apple Pay cash.
The company was highly criticised for slowing down older iPhones to save battery life without user’s consent. After this fiasco, Apple also decreases the price of battery replacement from Rs 6,000 to Rs 2,000.
The main focus of this update is to resolve that issue, where, owners of older iPhones will be able to toggle between the performance and battery life with a touch a button. Additionally, this also introduces some other features as well. So, here are the top five features to look forward to in iOS 11.3.
If the company decides to introduce a feature, that might interfere with the performance of the device, one might see this option. Additionally, when Apple collects personal data to personalise the user experience, the same icon will be displayed on top of the device. This provides a transparency between the user and company to build a strong foundation of security. Similarly, the setting app icon for privacy has been updated from a grey icon to blue coloured one.
This feature will help users to get detailed insights on iPhones battery condition. Depending on the condition, a user will be able to toggle the switch between performance and battery life. Additionally, Apple says, manually toggling the switch will affect battery life. This means user’s with older iPhones will be able to get back the device performance without replacing the battery.
Four new Animojis
This feature is only limited to the iPhone X users. With this new software update, Apple adds four new Animojis characters. Lion, Dragon, Skull, and Panda are the four new characters that have been added to this update.
Messages on iCloud
iMessages now seamlessly sync with iCloud to free up storage on your phone. This also means that one can access messages on devices like iPad and Mac by signing into your Apple ID. Additionally, if you delete a message on one device, it will be deleted from other devices as well.
Multi-Room support for AirPlay 2
This is one nifty feature, which helps you to play the same music on more than one Apple devices. If you have a Home Pod and an Apple TV, now you will be able to play music on both devices simultaneously.
