Apple releases first HomePod software update alongside iOS 11.3

But, interestingly, Apple Music actually added the videos section slightly ahead of the release of iOS 11.3 this morning (which is now available, by the way).

Apple released iOS 11.3, offering a business chat feature that could make it a more usable platform for organizations to reach users.

As the Apple blogosphere has noted, the Music Videos remodel was supposed to be included in iOS 11.3, meaning its full-on release should be arriving soon.

Improvements to Apple software also mean your phone will be able to recognise 2D objects (like signs or posters), which means it'll be easier to make apps that give you information about, say, a piece of art hanging on the wall in a museum. These can be found in Settings - Battery and are available for iPhone 6 and later. It wasn't for the reason many suspected-to sell more new iPhones-but to extend the lives of older ones; still, Apple had not been upfront about what it was doing behind the scenes.

The iPhone Battery Health feature is in beta.

Tapping or clicking on Music Videos will bring you to a new section, with larger images highlighting several music videos at the top. Within the conversation, the vendor can even list items for sale that can be instantly purchased using Apple Pay - all without leaving the app. Most notably, you'll now be able to check the health of your iPhone's battery, and you'll be able to see if your device is being throttled because of it.

The new performance management deature will default to off when devices update to iOS 11.3, according to Apple support, though it will turn back on if there is a subsequent unexpected shutdown.

IPhone users at more than 100 hospitals and clinics in the USA can now access parts of their medical records through the Health app, Apple announced today. The data will be encrypted, and users will need to enter a password to view it.

Just two months after announcing the beta, Apple is now launching its Apple Health Records feature into the wild, the company announced today. "These new institutions, patients have greater access to their medical information including lab results, medications, conditions and more". And if you care about security, it's always a good thing to update to the latest version of iOS.
