Apple just announced a bunch of new features and upgrades coming to the iPhone and iPad with the iOS 11.3 upgrade due out this spring.

In my opinion the best change is an added setting that will allow owners to disable the performance downgrade. This update will prevent unexpected shutdowns in iPhones with older batteries. Other significant changes include: A new feature called Health Records, which allows iPhone owners to view their health data from medical providers. New Animoji characters. Updates to Apple Music and Apple News. And the Messages app will be modified to allow users to chat with businesses to make appointments and  purchases with Apple Pay.
