Users will also be able to view their own health records within the Health app, depending on the information participating health institutions have shared, and receive updates from test results, conditions and changes in medication.

Apple already allows iPhone users to store health information gathered by the Apple Watch and other connected devices in its Health app, but this is the first time a system for retrieving records from a variety of medical providers has been launched on a smartphone.

Update 1: Messages in iCloud are now in beta form with iOS 11.3 beta 1. New Animoji are also here in the form of a lion, dragon, bear, and skull. The latest iOS will be available this spring for the iPhone 5 and later, as well as all iPad Airs and iPad Pros, the fifth generation iPad, iPad Mini 2 and later, and the iPod Touch sixth generation.

Apple's now on its first iOS 11.3 beta which means we probably have a long way to go before the update officially arrives for iPhone and iPad models around the world.
