IOS 11.3 public beta 2 is here, complete with battery performance options

Dynamic Type lets users easily adjust the size of the text that apps supporting this feature will display

The iPhone X and the latest iPhone 8 models won't be affected by power management issues, said Apple, because they contain "hardware updates" that process battery and power better than older models.

The letter comes just a few weeks after Apple admitted that the company was secretly slowing down older iPhones to compensate for the loss in battery efficiency and to maintain optimum battery life.

More than a year after its battery slowdown update, Apple has been besieged by a flood of lawsuits seeking class-action status, and government watchdog agencies in France, Italy and South Korea began probes into whether Apple engaged in planned obsolescence.

An older iPhone was seen in Washington in 2013. Sharp that supplied parts for the iPhone X reportedly failed to renew the deal.

The feature is contained within a new "Battery Health" menu, which is under the "Battery" tab on iOS 11.3: maximum capacity shows what percentage of the original charge your battery can still hold; and peak performance capacity, which tells you if your phone's performance is being throttled due to the battery. The third-party software you need is called coconut Battery, and you need a Mac because there's no Windows/Linux version of the software available.

After you've installed iOS 11.3 public beta, head over to Settings Battery. Granted, a battery replacement would speed up throttled iPhone models, but replacing the battery doesn't come cheap.

Apple also updated an online support document regarding iPhone battery and performance with certain details about the new handsets. Before you go any further, you might want to take a look at my list of precautions and caveats related to running beta software on your iPhone. For now, this update only applies to the iPhone SE, 6, 6 Plus, 6S, 6S Plus, 7, and 7 Plus.

An important thing to note here is that Apple also said that all iPhones contain basic performance management features necessary for safety and to protect the components inside the phone.

If the battery is worn you will be offered the ability to disable performance throttling, as well as get information on how to get the battery replaced.
