The ARKit update will enable augmented reality (AR) apps to detect walls and other vertical surfaces, and more accurately map non-linear surfaces like circular tables.

After updating their phones, users will find a new option on the Battery page of the Settings app to turn off the feature, which Apple said "dynamically manages maximum performance to prevent unexpected shutdowns".

Business Chat allows users to text businesses like Lowe's directly in their Messages app, improving customer service responsiveness.

But perhaps the biggest change is the much-needed power management feature to the battery settings in iOS 11.3. Apple has referred to it as a "power management feature".

With iOS 11.3, Apple will also be introducing four new Animoji characters - a lion, a bear, a dragon, and a skull - and upgrading the augmented reality capabilities of its ARKit tool.

These animated characters were introduced late past year and Apple is now bringing more of these animated emojis to life including a dragon, bear, skull and lion. Apple is also adding new features to show battery health and recommend if a battery needs to be serviced; these will be available on the iPhone 6 and later models. At best, iOS 11 users might notice faster transitions in the user interface animations, and possibly, launch and run times of apps and games.

These features will be coming in a later iOS 11.3 beta release.

iOS 11.3 promises other new features and improvements.

If you're a developer, you can get the developer releases from the Apple Developer site, where the Developer Program will be available starting today. It can also now recognize the position of 2D images such as signs, posters, and artwork, allowing developers to integrate these real-world images into AR experiences.

Health Records data is encrypted and protected with the user's iPhone passcode. Apple says the battery related features will come in a later iOS 11.3 beta release. This will launch in United States with support of select businesses like Discover, Hilton, Lowe's and Wells Fargo. This feature will let you chat with businesses, set appointments, and order products. As its name implies, the app keeps track of a user's health records so that they can see information like allergies, recent or upcoming procedures, medications, and lab results all in one place.
