Apple to introduce Business Chat to iMessage

Apple to introduce Business Chat to iMessage

Apple has stated that the next update to iOS 11 will take place in the Spring, with no exact date specified, so users will have to put up with slower phones for a few more weeks yet. While the internal beta for the update is available right now, the newly added power management feature has not yet been included.

iOS 11.3 also introduces four new Animoji, giving iPhone X users the ability to express themselves more.

Finally, the Health app will now let you view your personal health records, sourced from hospitals and clinics that you've visited.

The iOS 11.3 update is expected to be available from during Spring, or March to May, Channel NewsAsia understands.

It is being said the new feature would allow consumers to talk to a business's service rep in iMessage, make payments via Apple Pay, and schedule appointments, depending on the business's needs. Facebook has made a similar push with its Messenger app, particularly by adding a new feature that makes it easier for Messenger users to discover businesses that are active on Facebook's messaging platform. Those with an iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7, or iPhone 7 Plus will be able to control the setting; the power management is not now applied to other iPhones or iOS devices. Just after releasing iOS 11.2.5, Apple announced the iOS 11.3 update for iPhone and iPad, which will deliver exciting upgrades to the iPhone X with new Animoji, better AR experiences on devices as old as the iPhone SE and other key safety and usability features. Updated ARKit 1.5 is going to be more smart that will be able to detect vertical surfaces and measure objects more accurately.

ARKit will see improvements with the launch of ARKit 1.5 which can turn posters, signs and artwork into interactive AR experiences. That's why in iOS 11.3 Apple is introducing a feature to turn this throttling off. Augmented reality apps will have autofocus and will be able to recognise 2D images, such as movie posters and allow them to come to life when you view them. Users will be able to stream all their favorite music videos without having to deal with ads.

In addition, the power management feature Apple is using to dynamically control maximum power is now presented as a toggle which the user themselves can control.
