Apple has been developing four next-generation iPhone projects: a 5.7- to 5.8-inch LCD device; a 6.0- to 6.1-inch LCD device; a 6.0- to 6.1-inch OLED device; and a 6.4- to 6.5-inch OLED device, according to Digitimes Research senior analyst Luke Lin.
American tech giant Apple has released the first iOS 11.3 public beta with all new features for iPhones and iPads to its public beta-testing group.
However, the company did not specify exactly when that update would be available, saying only that it would come after the planned release of iOS 11.3 this spring that adds a slew of new animojis and features for its health app.
Correction: A previous version of this story stated that the Health Records feature, located within the Health app, will be accessible on the iPhone and Apple Watch. Apple said it introduced the feature to prevent older devices from shutting down unexpectedly, but its quiet rollout - and the inability of users to opt out - led to widespread criticism as well as at least 15 class action lawsuits.
The company has released the developer preview of iOS 11.3 to members of the iOS Developer Program.
Notably absent from the announcement for iOS 11.3 is any mention of major security improvements. Apple says Messages will support Business Chats, allowing businesses to communicate directly with users. The feature will let users schedule appointments and even make purchases using Apple Pay. It can recognize and place virtual objects on vertical surfaces such as walls and doors.
Among the companies Business Chat initially will work with are Lowe's, Discover and Wells Fargo.
The type of information you'll be able to access includes allergies, conditions, immunizations, lab results, medications, procedures and vitals.
Also new with iOS 11.3 is a change that makes the home for music videos, with Apple touting uninterrupted ad-free watching, as well as curation of new hits.
Health Records data is encrypted and protected with the user's passcode, Apple said. This feature may save your life in Europe, but in the US you'll have to hope you can tell operators the address or hope they can see you wave. A user will be notified whenever new information is available.
