The Potentially Life-Saving Feature Added in iOS 11.3

The Potentially Life-Saving Feature Added in iOS 11.3

Apple says Messages will support Business Chats, allowing businesses to communicate directly with users.

Besides Animojis, ARKir 1.5, Battery health monitoring and others there will be a new option which was first announced at WWDC and now will arrive in beta in iOS 11.3, i.e., Business Chat.

With Business Chat, consumers can conduct a conversation with a company representative, schedule an appointment or make purchases using Apple Pay in the messages app. Business Chat doesn't share the user's contact information with businesses, Apple stated, and users can exit a chat at any time.

In the initial period, the support is restricted to selected businesses like Wells Fargo, Discover, Hilton, and Lowe's. "This is why we are excited about working with Apple to make accessing secure medical records from an iPhone as simple for a patient as checking email". EENA's executive director, Gary Machado, is happy with Apple's announcement: "This is huge news for people's safety".

The change will come as part of an iOS 11.3 software update, which will be released in the spring for consumers and was released Wednesday as a test for developers.

Apple Announces that HomePod will be in Stores on February 9th
In Australia things get more interesting for HomePod , as Amazon's Echo devices are also launching in early February . The device features a large woofer and seven beam-forming tweeters arrayed 360 degrees around the HomePod's body.

Apple encrypts health records data "at rest", which means encryption ever after transfer into an iPhone.

The update is available on the developer center and should be rolling out over-the-air soon. Instead of trying to recall the names of all your pills or your medical history while in pain, you easily pull up your medical record on your phone.

iPhones on iOS 11.3 will automatically send a user's current location when making a call to emergency services - a feature that could prove incredibly vital. There is a small problem: all you can do with an Apple TV in the Home App is play and pause music.

Apple News will have a new Video group in the For You sections and an improved Top Stories section. AML was developed in the United Kingdom and is fully deployed there and in Austria, Belgium, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Ireland, Lithuania, and New Zealand, and. All Android phones running Gingerbread OS and higher support AML. More hospitals and other electronic health vendors will be able to join in the coming months. A user then needs to connect to Apple's software system for accessing the data from the service. Reportedly, the iBooks Store will also become the Apple Books Store.

In a somewhat controversial move, Apple is adding a new health records feature to iOS Health app. Documentation with tvOS 11.3 was void of great detail when released Thursday leaving few facts as to what Apple plans to do to link the two devices together.
