Apple on Wednesday released its first beta version of the upcoming iOS 11.3 update and has introduced few new features, including some major changes and a list of smaller tweaks which will be out in the market this spring.

Whether you're interested in knowing your battery or sending cute Animojis to friends, this new iOS update has something to pique your curiosity. So, here are 4 of the coolest features of iOS 11.3:

  1. Take Control Of Your Battery

Recently, Apple was caught red-handed throttling its phone's processing power and ended up having to apologize for keeping it a secret.

With iOS 11.3, the battery is under the user’s control. One can turn off the throttling feature or navigate to Settings > Battery to have a look at the battery's health and manage the usage of the phone.

  1. Messages on iCloud

iOS 11.3 has finally introduced the feature "Messages on iCloud." This new feature will free up space by keeping photos and other message attachments in iCloud, and it will sync the messages across all of the devices - even new ones.

If a user has two-factor authentication and iCloud Backup enabled, Messages on iCloud will automatically be enabled. 

  1. New Animoji

When iOS 11 was out, it came with 12 different Animoji, and now, the new iOS 11.3 brings four amazing creatures - a lion, bear, dragon, and skull. These Animojis are little-animated characters that mimic facial expressions and voice using the TrueDepth camera.

  1. Business Chat

Business Chat is designed for iPhone and iPad users to have a way to communicate directly with businesses using the Messages app. Business Chat will let its users have a business conversation with a service representative, schedule appointment, and make purchases using Apple Pay in the Messages app.
