Apple is embracing the trend to update its iOS regularly and has revealed some new features coming to iOS 11.3. The software update will also improve security for HomeKit devices, upgrade music video playback in the Apple Music service, add a new video section to Apple News and send location information to emergency services during a call. This allows you to stream videos inside the app, rather than having to store them inside your videos app.
Another feature that will be present in iOS 11.3 is Advanced Mobile Location, which allows first responders to locate someone within a few inches using a combination of WiFi, cellular signals and Global Positioning System. Apple says Messages will support Business Chats, allowing businesses to communicate directly with users. Among the companies that will support Business Chat when it comes out are Discover, Hilton, Lowe's, and Wells Fargo.

They can also opt to receive notifications when their information is updated.
It may also be part of a trend. The feature is meant to help users see all their available medical data from multiple providers.
If that's the case, it's a useful trend.
In a statement Wednesday, Apple chief operating officer Jeff Williams said the company's goal is to "help consumers live a better day".
