Apple's ARKit software for augmented reality gets a boost that will let developers produce apps in which virtual objects can be placed on walls, doors, other vertical surfaces, and, Apple says, more accurately map irregularly shaped surfaces like circular tables. It was first introduced in iOS 10.2 and dynamically manages the handset's performance, but until now users have not been able to choose whether it's turned on or off.
The biggest update to ARKit with iOS 11.3 will be ARKit 1.5 for developers.
Apple will also introduce battery performance stats in a future iOS 11.3 build. - The new update will also add a new Health Records feature to the iOS Health app in the United Sates to make it easier to access and control health records and data. In addition, the AR platform can now integrate real-world 2D images into AR experiences - such as bringing a movie poster to life. The promised power management for worn out batteries will be there, along with new Animoji characters, Health Records management, and more. This feature will launch in Beta with the public availability of iOS 11.3 this spring, with the support of select businesses including Discover, Hilton, Lowe's and Wells Fargo.
The CPU Manager feature in iOS 11.3 will allow iPhone users to tweak the performance of their device as per their needs and preferences.
The new 'Business Chat' feature enables users to communicate directly with businesses from within Messages, without the user sharing their contact information with the business.
There's a new update en route to iOS - and it's set to bundle a number of much-requested changes, including the option to disable the controversial processor throttling feature that's was uncovered on older iPhones. You will receive notifications when your prescriptions are ready and Apple insists the data is encrypted and password protected.
They can also watch the hottest new videos, the classics or ones from their favourite artists back-to-back in new music video playlists. Hence, you will soon make use of the iCloud Messages, Apple Music videos, and new Animojis.
