Registered developers can download and install the new iOS 11.3 beta 2 via Apple's Developer Center OTA from Settings Software Update or those who are already members and have the beta profile installed on their 64 bit iOS devices can install iOS 11.3 beta 2.
When this maximum capacity is under 80 percent, a message shows up on the screen indicating that the battery has "significantly degraded", accompanied by a link explaining how to get the iPhone serviced. The good news is that Apple will carry out a battery swap for $29, but how do you know if it will help?
The new update brings with it several new features that public beta testers can try out before the final release. Therefore if you are interested then you can certainly check this Beta version. You may experience issues with battery life or apps randomly crashing - that's just part of helping Apple test. Follow the instructions in this post if you're OK with that.
The reason Apple has gone for this feature is that irrespective of the iPhone model, the battery will be lose its capacity to hold charge over time.
Apple's statement comes from a question Senator Thune asked on whether customers should get a rebate if they didn't pay the reduced price for the battery.
The company also said its newly announced operating system will let users turn off the software feature that slows performance and check a phone's battery's condition.
iOS 11.3 beta 2 has updated ARKit, more Animoji characters for iPhone X users, Business Chat, Stereo HomePod syncing support etc.
The Washington Post reported Rep. Greg Walden (R-Ore.), who chairs the House Energy and Commerce Committee, also sent a letter to Apple asking for more information. This feature is enabled only after an unexpected shutdown first occurs on a device with a battery that has diminished ability to deliver maximum instantaneous power. Swiping through the home screen and app pages suddenly feel quicker than it did before, and in a lot of ways, it's like having a completely new, unused iPhone.
An important thing to note here is that Apple also said that all iPhones contain basic performance management features necessary for safety and to protect the components inside the phone.
