Apple Finally Releases iOS 11.3 With Battery Optimization Feature
After months of beta testing, Apples finally released iOS 11.3 for its devices. One of the most anticipated features allows you to disable battery throttling on your iPhone, ensuring peak performance but with more instability as a result. Apple is now letting people choose whether to sacrifice performance or battery life and stability.
As you can expect, the battery changes are a huge part of this update. People with an iPhone 6 or later will be able to find these new toggles under the settings. iOS 11.3 now also shows the capacity of the battery, where you can quickly see how much the battery has degraded over time. If the battery has been degraded significantly, the software will let you know that your device is being throttled.
Apple received a ton of criticism after reports of slower iPhones started showing up due to the degraded batteries and the company kept this a secret. This new iOS version adds more transparency.
Aside from the battery update, iOS 11.3 also has a ton of bugfixes and security patches for WebKit and Safari. ARKit has also been updated to version 1.5, with support for augmented reality objects on virtual surfaces. the resolution of the AR-objects has also been increased and the AR camera app now features autofocus. Business Chat is now available in messages, and iPhone X users will be glad to hear that iOS 11.3 features four new Animoji.
