IOS now informs you when it wants your personal data

Perhaps the biggest benefit of buying an Apple device over an Android competitor is iOS' far superior cadence and frequency of software updates.

iOS 11.3 also adds a number of bug fixes, including solving connectivity issues with Apple's iPad Pro Smart Keyboard.

Unlike virtual reality (which requires a headset to replace your surroundings with virtual images), AR uses your phone's camera to overlay computer images onto the real world around you. The update also includes new Health Records features for the Health app, which will automatically populate with information from more than 40 major health systems. That's not all. iPhone X users will be able to enjoy four new Animoji - Lion, bear, dragon, and skull. First previewed during last year's WWDC, Business Chat allows people to message companies in iMessage much like the way Facebook users chat with businesses on Messenger. These conversations can be continued on Apple Watch or Mac. Apple has confirmed that music videos will now have their own separate section in Apple Music.

Better still, you don't even have to share your contact info with the business for it to work - and you can stop chatting at any time.

Apple News makes it easier to stay up-to-date on the most important videos of the day with a new Video group in For You, and improved Top Stories.

Owners of compatible iOS devices can follow instructions here to update to iOS 11.3.

It is that level of control which remains in stark contrast to iOS, which is most noticeably now being updated with a new "Data & Privacy" icon and branding. With recent generations of phones, starting with the iPhone 6, Apple started using lithium-ion batteries. A new Health Records feature has also been added to let you access your medical records right on iPhone. Introduced as part of iOS 10.2.1 in January 2017, this "power management feature", as Apple calls it, was meant to ensure that aging batteries could keep up with newer mobile OSes and to avoid crashes.

Battery health is the topic on which company is facing more than 60 cases in the US. If your iPhone's performance is being throttled to prevent unexpected shutdowns, this screen will communicate that and provide the option to disable that throttling.

You'll also be able to store records from your doctor or hospital on the upgraded Health app.
