Apple To Allow You To Access All Your Health Records From iPhone

Apple released the details of the battery management feature along with a number of other features in an unusual move, apparently aimed at stemming complaints about the company's lack of transparency when the issue of the iPhone performance throttling was first discovered.

Apple has yet to confirm the existence of a new iPad in the works, but it isn't the least bit surprising that the company is planning on expanding its line-up with one of the flagship features. For now, the app does not include doctors' notes, but Apple may add that someday, and Geisinger already offers that on its MyGeisinger website, said Dr. Jonathan Slotkin, director of spinal surgery for Geisinger's Neuroscience Institute and medical director of a Geisinger program that encourages reaching patients through technology.

Now, the tech giant has given fans a preview of the next big software update, iOS 11.3.

Notably absent from the announcement for iOS 11.3 is any mention of major security improvements.

This new feature will not share the contact information of the user with the businesses.

The app lets users chat with a service rep, schedule an appointment, or make purchases through Apple Pay without leaving the app.

The type of information you'll be able to access includes allergies, conditions, immunizations, lab results, medications, procedures and vitals. Apple says that "in addition to horizontal surfaces like tables and chairs, ARKit can now recognise and place virtual objects on vertical surfaces like walls and doors, and can more accurately map irregularly shaped surfaces like circular tables".

The other new features which come with the iOS 11.3 will include Apple News "For You" section that will show you the top news video of the day.

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.

Advanced Mobile Location - also known as "AML" - automatically sends the user's location when they the emergency services.

Apple Inc. plans to release a software update that will let users disable a function that slowed down older iPhones to preserve battery life, the company said Wednesday. Developers received the iOS 11.3 beta a few days after the release of the iOS 11.2.5 update. The feature is meant to help users see all their available medical data from multiple providers.
