Apple releases iOS 11.3 update with new Animoji and Battery Health feature

Today, vast swaths of iPhones and iPads will gain access to iOS 11.3, an update that Apple says brings new augmented-reality features and the ability to control the power-management functionality that was quietly introduced in a past release.

The release of iOS 11.3 also included new Animoji and some additional ARKit experiences, the release noted. Apple touts that this makes for a "new music video experience for Apple Music". Most notably, you'll now be able to check the health of your iPhone's battery, and you'll be able to see if your device is being throttled because of it.

The update, iOS 11.3, is technically one of a dozen official updates to the iOS 11 operating system since it debuted in September.

But, interestingly, Apple Music actually added the videos section slightly ahead of the release of iOS 11.3 this morning (which is now available, by the way). After installing the update, head over to Settings Battery Battery Health to see if the slowdown feature is enabled on your iPhone 6, 6 Plus, SE, 6s, 6s Plus, 7, or 7 Plus.

The new Health Records feature, meanwhile, let patients of more than 40 health systems including Duke, NYU Langone, Stanford and Yale view their medical records from multiple institutions right from their iPhone.

Before the update, the medical records section of the app was only available to the people who had signed up to test a pre-release version.
