iOS 11.3 Beta 4 available for beta testing

New public iOS beta released for beta testers.

Apple is rolling out the fourth beta of iOS 11.3, available for both public testers and developers as an OTA update. This beta version came two weeks after Beta 3 with the fix of the big causing iPhone and iPad devices to crash if they receive an Indian character. New features have not been introduced in Beta 4, although Apple probably fixes many small issues here and there.

As a reminder, iOS 11.3 is turning out to be a fairly major update, more significant than iOS 11.1 and 11.2. It will offer a decent list of new features, like ARKit 1.5, new Emoji, the ability to backup messages in iCloud, and more.

Four new animated Emoji will be offered for iPhone X users, while the Heath app will have a new section for your medical records at a glance.

There is also the Battery Health section in Settings → Battery, where you could learn useful information about the battery, including its maximum capacity, peak performance, and the ability to turn off battery throttling for devices with degraded batteries. This is an experimental feature added as Apple faced a backlash after the news that the company is intentionally slowing down older iPhones to prevent unexpected shutdowns.

The official iOS 11.3 may also support new AirPlay features, through which you could stream music to more than one Apple TV. These features were introduced to the first iOS 11.3 beta, but later removed, and currently we don’t have information whether they will be included in the final update or not.
