iOS 11.3 is available today

iOS 11.3 delivers exciting new immersive augmented reality experiences, new Animoji for iPhone X users, access to personal health records in the Health app and more. This free software update also offers customers more visibility into the battery health and performance of their iPhone.

New AR Experiences

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. With iOS 11.3, apps can now deliver AR experiences that use vertical surfaces like walls and doors, in addition to horizontal surfaces like tables and chairs, and more accurately map to irregularly shaped surfaces like circular tables.

Using advanced computer vision techniques to find and recognize the position of 2D images such as signs, posters and artwork, ARKit can integrate these real world images into AR experiences such as filling a museum with interactive exhibits or bringing a movie poster to life. The view of the real world through the camera now has 50 percent greater resolution and supports auto-focus for an even sharper perspective.

Animoji

Four all-new Animoji bring iPhone X users’ expressions to life as a lion, bear, dragon or skull. 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.

Business Chat

Business Chat is a new way for users to communicate directly with businesses using the Messages app on iPhone and iPad. Starting today, Business Chat will be available in beta in the US and top businesses in retail, finance and hospitality will begin rolling out this new messaging feature for customers. When searching for a business in Maps, Safari, Search or Siri on iPhone and iPad, users will see the option to contact the business using Messages to ask a question about a product or service, or make a purchase using Apple Pay. These conversations can be continued on Apple Watch or Mac. Users are always in control of whether they share any contact information with a business on Business Chat.

Health Records

The new Health Records feature helps 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. With the inclusion of these new institutions, patients have greater access to their medical information including lab results, medications, conditions and more. Health Records data is encrypted and protected with a passcode.

Data & Privacy

iOS 11.3 and macOS 10.13.4 introduce updated data and privacy information that makes it easier than ever for users to understand how their personal data may be used. A new privacy icon and detailed privacy information will appear whenever Apple asks for access to personal information to enable features, secure Apple services or personalize an iOS experience.

iOS 11.2 Beta 6 Update Is Available

Apple is on the stage with the iOS 11.2 Beta 6 update. We wanted to update you with the details of iOS 11.2 Beta 6, which does not offer much innovation compared to other Beta versions. This release was right after the release of iOS 11.2 to the general public.

Apple recently released iOS 11.2 Beta 6 for developers surprisingly right after releasing iOS 11.2 Beta 5. The early release of the iOS 11.2 Beta 6 update with bug fixes and performance improvements make us expect that the final version of iOS 11.2 will be released by mid-December. We will wait and see what will happen.

With the iOS 11.2 Beta 6 update, there are the very same innovations in previous beta releases. However, the iMessage feature on iCloud mentioned in WWDC 17 is not available with this update either. We probably will need to wait for iOS 11.3 for this.

A small line will be added under the icons in the upper right corner of the iPhone X showing the battery status and the activation of the position system. Thus, it will try to be forwarded to the user who opens the notification center. An innovation coming for the iPhone X will be 7.5W fast charging support. With the update, iPhone Xs will be charging faster.

There will be two notification texts in the Control Center explaining why Wi-Fi and Bluetooth cannot be permanently turned off. Thus, the user will be told that this is not a fault and is part of the system’s way of working.

When a quick key is pressed in the calculator, an error will be corrected which causes some operations to be bypassed. All animations in the calculator application will be removed for you to perform error-free and fast operations.

How to install the iOS 11.2 Beta 6

If you have a developer account; you can install iOS 11.2 Beta 6 updates from Settings> General> Software Update.
