IOS 11.3 Public Beta 2 for iPhone and iPad Released

The iPhone 8, 8 Plus and iPhone X models include hardware upgrades that enable a more advanced performance management system that makes iOS anticipate and prevent an unexpected shutdown. In line with what the company told customers previous year, Apple's Public Policy Vice President Cynthia Hogan reiterated to Thune that the upcoming iOS 11.3 update will give users "greater visibility into the health of their iPhones".

Late past year it came to light that Apple has included code in the iOS operating system that throttles the performance of iPhones if the battery is showing signs of wear. As part of its solution, Apple cut its battery replacement program to just $30 instead of $70.

In a letter addressed to Senator John Thune (R-S.D.), Chairman of the Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) said (PDF) it is exploring whether customers who paid full price for battery replacement should get a rebate for some of the purchase price.
