Second betas of iOS 11.3, watchOS 4.3 And tvOS 11.3 Released

Apple today seeded Public beta 2 for iOS 11.3, watchOS 4.3 and tvOS 11.3. All of these betas are now available for download for those who are already testing the software through over-the-air. Those installing iOS 11.3 for the first time will have to install the beta configuration profile and then download the update.

iOS 11.3 brings a bunch of new features including 4 new Animoji to iPhone X, Battery Health, Health Record, Business Chat for iMessage, Messages in the Cloud, ARKit 1.5 with support for vertical surfaces and more.

 The Beta 2 enables the Battery Health feature that was missing from the first beta release. This feature gives users information about health of their device’s battery and on older iPhones let them disable throttling at the increased risk of unexpected shutdowns. 
 
watchOS 4.3 brings some small changes to watchOS including new charging animation, portrait orientation for Nightstand, shows Apple Watch as Speaker in Control Center’s AirPlay and brings back the iPhone Music control in the Music app, that will allow users to AirPlay music from iPhone to an AirPlay speaker and control using Apple Watch.

tvOS 11.3 is much more tame, but still adds a handful of improvements, including support for AirPlay 2 and other iOS 11.3-related features, frame rate switching for Apple TV 4, and automatic mode switching for AirPlay video sessions.
