After beta testing the update since January, Apple today is rolling out iOS 11.3 for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This new option shows the battery health of an iPhone and recommends the user if the battery needs to be serviced.

The update also offers four new Animoji (for iPhone X users only) and introduces Business Chat - a new way for users to communicate with businesses in the retail, finance, and hospitality industries using the iPhone's Messages app.

Apple users worldwide will see a new data privacy information page when they update the software from Thursday on their iPhones explaining an icon which will appear when an Apple feature collects personal information. 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. Till then, enjoy the new iOS 11.3 update. When you see "95 percent" in the Battery Health section, it means the iPhone has experienced an unexpected shutdown and battery was unable to deliver peak performance.

Other feature include new Animojis and an improved augmented reality experience.

You will also now be able to store your medical records on your iPhone, with a new feature in the Health app that will let you connect to your healthcare provider.

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. The Guardian states that this new privacy push is in connection with the General Data Protection Regulation, which goes into effect in the European Union in May. Chances are you're not one of the very, very few people in this world that need that top performance at all times. Currently, users can only download their data, correct their contact info, or delete their accounts by contacting Apple Support directly.

New Animoji: Apple introduced new Animoji with the latest update, bringing the total number of characters to 16.

Apple launched highly predicted software update for the iPhone.

These can be found in Settings - Battery and are available for iPhone 6 and later. According to Masri, this vulnerability might prove useless in the end but, on the other hand, if exploited properly by devs it could open the roads to iOS 11.3 Jailbreak. The app will be available in beta for the USA and top businesses in retail, finance, and hospitality. A lion, a bear, a dragon, and a skull will now be available in the Messages app, all with the ability to capture your facial movements and record your voice.
