Yesterday we heard about the second beta of iOS 11.3 which brings some new battery management features to the iPhone.
Apple has now revealed some more details about the new Battery Health feature in iOS 11.3, these will show the health of the battery, its maximum capacity and also whether there are any issues with it.
Apple is releasing these new features in response to the backlash it received when it was discovered that the company was slowing down iPhones with degraded batteries. The company is facing a number of lawsuits for this and also scrutiny form various agencies.
This applies to handsets like the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus, the iPhone SE and the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The new feature shows when the battery performance on your handset is normal and also when the performance management feature is enabled.
Apple will allow you to turn this feature for performance management on and off when the final version of iOS 11.3 is released. The new battery health section will also let you know when you battery on your handset is degraded and when it needs to be replaced.
