Apple Releases iOS 11.3 with Battery Health Settings, New Animoji, More

iOS 11.3 also includes a new feature inside the Health application called Health Record, which lets iPhone users download health records including lab results, data on allergies, medications, immunizations and more.

A new privacy icon and detailed privacy information will appear whenever Apple asks for access to personal information to enable features, secure Apple services or personalise an iOS experience. Lastly, if the battery health shows "unknown" it means iPhone is unable to determine the health, and you'll need to replace the battery.
