Apple iOS update sheds light on battery health
The update is for models iPhone 6 and newer.

Apple's latest update to its operating system enables iPhone and iPad owns to check the health of their batteries.

After the tech titan admitted that its software purposely slows the batteries of certain iPhone models, Apple has been working to rebuild its reputation, from discounted battery replacements to now being more open about battery health.

The iOS 11.3 update will also allow users to check the power management feature and have the option to turn it on or off. Plus, with the update, Apple will inform users if their battery needs to be serviced.

The move sees Apple becoming more transparent with its followers, after its recent backlash.

Its latest operating system also sees a push for augmented reality as its ARKit 1.5 software enables developers to turn artwork into AR experiences. Additionally users can also play around with four more Animoji - a dragon, bear, skull and lion.

The update includes the following iPhones: the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
