Apple's health records beta feature now available at 39 health systems

Apple on Thursday released iOS 11.3, the twelfth official update to the iOS 11 operating system more than a month the launch of iOS 11.2.6. According to the iOS 11 release notes from Apple: "Fixes a problem that could cause the capitalization of the first letter of some words by the automatic correction feature".

You can get the update now by going into Settings - General - Software Update. It is said to be the biggest update for the iPhone and iPad since iOS 11 as it has brought some bold new features which Apple doesn't usually give.

Following are four new Animoji (dragon, bear, skull, and lion) on the iPhone X in iOS 11.3. This free software update also offers customers more visibility into the battery health and performance of their iPhones.

And iOS 11.3 is also the battery update we've all been waiting for.

Abraham Masri, a person who has been involved in jailbreaking of older iOS systems, discovered a "Zero-Day" vulnerability in the Beta versions of iOS 11.3.

A new health records feature that allows users to look up their medical information is also being trialed in the US. On the AR front, ARKit can now detect vertical surfaces like walls and doors, as well as horizontal surfaces such as floors, tables, countertops and more. This feature is available in beta to U.S. users only. Upon installing the update, users are greeted with the phrase, "Apple believes privacy is a fundamental human right"-a dig, perhaps, at Facebook, which has recently become embroiled in its own privacy scandal".

The Business Chat feature makes it easy to have a conversation with a service representative, schedule appointments or make purchases using Apple Pay from within the Messages app.

Apple is introducing new tools that will allow consumers to control how their data are used and deactivate their Apple ID accounts, as tech companies strive to bring their services into line with a tough new European Union data protection law. It is also advisable to connect create a backup for your data before installing the update. Unlike Facebook or Google, Apple's business model isn't primarily based on collecting data about its users to serve advertisements, though it does show targeted ads in places like the App Store.

HomeKit software authentication provides a great new way for developers to add HomeKit support to existing accessories while protecting privacy and security.
