IPhone software update spotlights Apple secrecy on battery health

Share

Apple declined to comment on why battery diagnosis is available on the Mac but not on the iPhone, or why it rejected the update to Hirooka's app.

This doesn't sound all that revealing, but as 9to5Mac points out, the "modern iPhone" was used in advance to describe the iPhone X before its 2017 release.

However, Apple has not yet made the final decision so there is still a chance that the vendor may come up with another combination, Lin added.

The feature is expected to rival similar products from competitors Facebook and Google. The smartphone will begin mass production in the second quarter with the official launch in May or June, Lin noted. Among the companies that will support Business Chat when it comes out are Discover, Hilton, Lowe's, and Wells Fargo.

The new features include the much-demanded battery and performance monitor app that will show battery health, recommend service if it's needed, and show whether the power management system has slowed down the device to prevent unexpected shutdowns. To be integrated into Apple's Messages tool, Business Chat will let users handle a variety of interactions with participating companies, ranging from customer support and appointment scheduling to paying for purchases with the help of Apple Pay.

Another new feature arriving for iPhone and iPad customers this spring is Business Chat.

They also will receive regular notifications for lab results, medications and other health-related information. Apple says that "in addition to horizontal surfaces like tables and chairs, ARKit can now recognise and place virtual objects on vertical surfaces like walls and doors, and can more accurately map irregularly shaped surfaces like circular tables".

The iPhone X's weaker-than-expected performance and battery life issues also are factors, and iOS 11.3's release will "help Apple fight against these headwinds", Sui said. Some of the highlights include updates to ARKit, Animoji, and more.

Interestingly, Apple looks set to take on WhatsApp's new, something that Facebook has also tried its hand at with bots and more for businesses in Messenger. A user will be notified whenever new information is available.

Apple encrypts health records data "at rest", which means encryption ever after transfer into an iPhone. The software update will also tell users when they should get their battery replaced.

However, the company might not go with the iPhone X like edge-to-edge display for the bigger display iPad Pro.
