This spring, Apple is set to launch the iOS 11.3 set to introduce exciting new updates to the iPhone and the iPad. "Users will be able to turn iOS" dynamic battery experience in order to prevent unexpected shutdowns, a feature the company first added to the iOS with the 10.2.1 update. Users will be able to find the feature under Battery in the Settings menu if they own an iPhone 6 or later.

For iPhone X owners, the update will include four new Animoji characters: a lion, bear, dragon and a skull. If you are not comfortable with using unfinished software on your iPhone, you will have to wait till "spring" to get the final version of iOS 11.3 on your iPhone.

In a somewhat surprising move, Apple has made a decision to announce iOS 11.3 in the form of a press release to let everyone know what it's been up to.

And, today, the iPhone maker officially reveals that this feature will be introduced in iOS 11.3.

The new Health Records feature brings together hospitals, clinics and the existing Health app to make it easy for consumers to see their available medical data from multiple providers, whenever they choose. With the new software update, "the view of the real world through the camera now has 50 percent greater resolution and supports auto-focus for an even sharper perspective", notes Apple. Apple says this information is protected by encryption and requires a passcode to view.

The latest feature reportedly comes packed with a battery health meter which now offers users with numerous recommendations especially with regards to their batteries.

Business Chat is a new way for users to communicate directly with businesses right within Messages.

The new over-the-air (OTA) update will bring new Animoji, an improved Health, Battery, and Messages app.

The iOS 11.2.5 update is now available for your iPhone and iPad with hundreds of new features for the iPhone and iPad. Users will be able to stream all their favorite music videos without having to deal with ads. This is especially important if you want to make sure Apple isn't downgrading a feature you use every day or changing how it works dramatically. There will also be support for Advanced Mobile Location (AML) to automatically send a user's current location when making a call to emergency services in countries where AML is supported.
