New iPad With Face ID Hinted At In iOS 11.3

For the first time iPhone users will be able to access medical records through the Health app

"Apple is uniquely positioned to help scale adoption because they have both a secure and trusted platform and have adopted the latest industry open standards at a time when the industry is well positioned to respond", Cedars-Sinai CIO Darren Dworkin said in prepared remarks.

Apple recently released the first beta of their iOS 11.3 software and it would appear that there are hints in the OS that Apple is planning a new iPad. The new battery features will be available to customers with iPhone 6 or later devices, while opting out of dynamic power management will be available to users with various models of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 7.

Paired with iOS 11.3 beta 1 yesterday is the first watchOS 4.3 beta for Apple Watch. Unfortunately, while Apple is supporting it, first responders in the US aren't.

Apple has form in this area as they already provide several ways to see the condition of your laptop battery within macOS.

"Information is power; a little information is a little power; withholding the rest is to withhold power", he wrote. For example, users could view virtual, interactive exhibits in museums or animate images in movie posters, according to Apple.

Is it a simple case of Apple "bubbling" this functionality up in iOS?

Another feature that will be present in iOS 11.3 is Advanced Mobile Location, which allows first responders to locate someone within a few inches using a combination of WiFi, cellular signals and Global Positioning System.

The members of Apple's beta-testing programme will receive the iOS 11.3 beta update via an OTA (over-the-air) update, after installing the proper certificate on an iOS device. Our guess is yes for consistancy. "Every one of us has a phone in our pocket or not too far from our pocket; it seems so logical, and frankly empowering, to have health information at our fingertips".

For iPhone X users, iOS 11.3 will also bring in four new Animoji: a lion, a bear, a dragon, and a skull.

Apple may have been slow off the block, but looks like it wants to capture the entire market of its devices with Business Chat.

Records viewable on the mobile devices were created based on Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources standards, the Cupertino, Calif. -based company said.

It also makes us wonder what the average user would make of this and Apple's wordsmithing will need to be spot on - otherwise, those of us who act as our parent's support hotline will be inundated with 'what does this mean son?' calls.
