  • Apple Music adds music videos launches with exclusives

The feature will include battery health, battery degradation, and performance analysis of battery.

Apple on Thursday released iOS 11.3, which, perhaps most notably, lets you switch off its controversial slowdown feature and see a breakdown of your battery's health, so you'll know whether it needs to be serviced.

The hub, a new Music Videos section in the browse tab, was first previewed as an iOS 11.3 feature back in January.

The A11 Bionic chip and TrueDepth camera give users the ability to record and send Animoji messages (and even create Animoji karaoke videos) using their voice and more than 50 different facial muscle movements. The feature will go live first in the USA and Canada, with other regions to follow.

Introduced as part of iOS 10.2.1 in January 2017, this "power management feature", as Apple calls it, was meant to ensure that aging batteries could keep up with newer mobile OSes and to avoid crashes. To try it out, search for a business in Maps, Safari, Search, or via Siri, and you may see the option to text the company.

Users in US and Canada get Beta version of Apple's Business Chat, a new messaging feature that provides users with a new way to communicate directly with businesses, reach a live person to ask a question or make a purchase using Apple Pay, on the go or at home.

Business Chat will launch with a handful of companies.

Additionally, ARKit has been refined to work better with irregularly-shaped surfaces, including circular tables. "These new institutions, patients have greater access to their medical information including lab results, medications, conditions and more".

tvOS 11.3 also includes a few minor improvements, including enhancements to Match Content, automatic frame rate switching on the fourth-generation Apple TV, and automatic mode switching for AirPlay.

The introduction of ARKit with iOS 11 put augmented reality into the hands of hundreds of millions of iPhone and iPad users, making iOS the world's biggest AR platform. This information will be accessible via a new privacy icon displayed when Apple will need your personal information to enable features, offer customization, etc.
