In Cupertino are already working on the creation of iOS 11.3, it follows from the materials of the official website of the company. The update will be released this spring and, in addition to standard fixes and performance improvements, will include advanced ARKit capabilities, cards in the Health application and performance monitoring mode.
The most important innovation of the update will be the function of monitoring the state of the battery. It will be available to owners of all models of the iPhone, starting with the sixth generation. Thanks to this innovation, users will always be aware of the level of deterioration of the battery.
The logical continuation of the described function is the performance management mode. As promised by Tim Cook, with her help, users will be able to choose between the longer battery life of the smartphone or its speed. The mode also appears on the iPhone 6 and newer models.
The second of the most noteworthy innovations will be support for ARKit 1.5 moving horizontally and animated objects. With their help, museums will be replenished with interactive exhibits, and furniture stores will be able to demonstrate to their customers how the sofa is laid out or the cabinet is assembled.
The introduction of ARKit has made iOS the world's largest supplemented reality platform, according to a published press release. In iOS 11.3, Apple will continue to develop this technology, offering developers even more exciting features and new, unprecedented tools to create AR-compatible software.
Also iOS 11.3 will bring support for business chats. Thanks to them, users can directly contact the support of a number of companies through messages. Obviously, initially the innovation tested by the representatives of Discover, Wells Fargo, Hilton and Lowe's will be available only in the United States.
In addition, four new animoji are expected to be introduced in the form of a lion, a dragon, a bear and a skull. As before, images that copy the user's facial expressions will be available only to the owners of the iPhone X. The company plans to adapt the animoji for the rest of its smartphones, unfortunately some were not announced.
One can not ignore the appearance of medical records in the "Health" application, which will be synchronized between medical institutions.
Among other things, we note the support for Apple Music music video clips, the revised algorithms for tape formation in the News application, some improvements in the security system of devices supporting the HomeKit platform, and the automatic sending of the location (AML) for emergency calls.
