The same feature first appeared in the beta versions of iOS 11 but was removed later because it was not ready for mass production.

Apple has released first beta iOS 11.3 for the developers that include several new features for the iPhone users. The Cupertino major on Wednesday introduces iOS 11.3 software update and brings along exciting updates to iPhone and iPad users. With iOS 11.3, Apple is adding a lion, a bear, a skull and a dragon to the mix to use to send within messages to friends.

If you don't feel like waiting for iOS 11.3's official release, you have a few options. Furthermore, messages in iCloud will return through this update. Both devices will feature edge to edge displays and will utilize Face ID for user authentication as opposed to Touch ID. The new version is expected later this Spring. Delete a message on one device and it's gone everywhere.

The update will also show music videos on Apple Music and also features changes to News with an improved "Top Stories" feature. It will allow you to turn off a controversial "throttling" feature which slows down phones as they age. It's been a huge source of controversy for the brand, and this update is meant to allow users of the iPhone 6 and above to choose between longer battery life at reduced performance or shorter battery life at full performance. CEO Tim Cook hinted that iPhone users would have more control over their phone's battery life in an interview last week.

Apple is also enhancing the augmented reality (AR) experience, with the introduction of ARKit 1.5, which will now be able to project virtual objects on flat vertical surfaces such as walls and doors.

Apple News also comes with a set of new features for videos. It will essentially be a way for users to communicate directly with businesses right within Messages. It will launch with support from Discover, Hilton, Lowe's, and Wells Fargo, the release noted. Additionally, users can schedule appointments and make purchases using Apple Pay on Business Chat. It will bring together medical records from hospitals and clinics along with data collected in the existing Health app and keep all the information in one place. "Health Records data is encrypted and protected with a passcode". Interested viewers can check out all the information on Apple's official website.

The company is also adding music videos to its Apple Music service.

But, what else is there in iOS 11.3? However, for now, users can not test those performance and battery settings in beta.
