Apple Music App Upgrade Puts Video In Spotlite

Owners of older devices can now disable a feature that slows down their iPhone to prevent a sudden shutdown.

The feature was introduced in response to the revelation that Apple had been intentionally slowing the performance of older iPhones in order to maximize the life of the battery. To placate outraged customers, the company dropped the price of battery replacements earlier this year.

As Facebook attempts to restore public trust following the Cambridge Analytica catastrophe and Europe prepares to implement new privacy laws, Apple on Thursday shared plans with Bloomberg to revamp its privacy controls.

The new Battery Health options are located in Settings - Battery - Battery Health (Beta). The data includes a Maximum Capacity reading for the battery and a label to convey when the battery isn't capable of peak performance and requires service. It will tell you if the battery needs to be replaced.

The website Apple Insider said the new feature was "as a reminder the iPhone and iPad operating system's next major upgrade will be arriving soon".

A new update has brought a Music Videos section to the app, which lets people watch videos from their favourite artist.

Apple Music subscribers are now getting more for their monthly fee: music videos have been added to the streaming platform.

Facebook has also announced some privacy changes ahead of the entry into force of the European Union law which is seen as raising standards worldwide as companies introduce changes globally. It's pitched by the company as a way for it to increase transparency around how it handles user data, aligned with GDPR rules. Previously, users could download their data, correct their information, and delete accounts by contacting Apple directly. One oddity discovered upon the iPhone X's launch is that you couldn't use Face ID to authenticate for approval of Family Sharing purchases, which Touch ID has always allowed.

The new Health Records feature let patients of more than 40 health systems view their medical records from multiple institutions right from their iPhone.

The Health app now has Health Record for downloading health records and data from participating physicians and hospitals.

Aside from that, iOS 11.3 includes four new Animoji for the iPhone X: a lion, bear, dragon, and skull.

Apple has just started rolling out iOS 11.3 for users. The data will be encrypted, and users will need to enter a password to view it.
