Apple releases iOS 11.3 beta update with power management, Animoji and more features

iOS 11.2, which was released at midnight on the weekend, fixes an autocorrect bug that was causing the word "it" to be autocorrected to "I.T" on earlier versions of iOS 11.


The update also brings Apple Pay Cash and support for faster 7.5W Qi wireless charging. If you have an iPhone 8 or an iPhone X as well as a wireless charger that supports 7.5W or more, your phone will now charge more quickly as Apple first limited wireless charging to 5W. As for the Apple Pay Cash,  the feature is not live yet; the company still needs to flip a switch on its servers to enable it.

In case of autocorrect  bug, not all users were affected, but those who were, they saw their keyboards offering up "I.T" as a predictive text suggestion and an automatic autocorrection when typing "it." Some people also saw the word "is" autocorrect to "I.S."

Besides, in iOS 11, if you tap on the Wi-Fi or Bluetooth icons in Control Center, iOS doesn’t disable Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. Instead, your phone disconnects itself from Wi-Fi networks and Bluetooth accessories until the next day at 5 AM (or you restart your device, or you go to a new place for Wi-Fi).

Apple doesn’t disable those features so that you can connect your Apple Watch or Apple Pencil, enable Personal Hotspot from another device and use Wi-Fi for more accurate location features. With iOS 11.2, the icons are no longer greyed out. You’ll now see white icons to indicate that Wi-Fi and Bluetooth still work, you’re just not connected to any network or accessory.

The update also brings a couple of revamped emojis, new wallpapers, a new indicator at the top right of the lock screen to help you find Control Center and better Wi-Fi and Bluetooth indications.
