In line with what the company told customers past year, Apple's Public Policy Vice President Cynthia Hogan reiterated to Thune that the upcoming iOS 11.3 update will give users "greater visibility into the health of their iPhones". The features under this software enables you to find the health of the battery of your older smartphones such as the iPhone 6 or even the iPhone 6s.

The Washington Post reported Rep. Greg Walden (R-Ore.), who chairs the House Energy and Commerce Committee, also sent a letter to Apple asking for more information.

Hogan also doubled down on Apple's stance that it would never slow down iPhones to pressure users to upgrade to a newer model, which is known as planned obsolescence.

The previous iOS 11.3 Beta from Apple had some issues being faced after which iOS 11.3 Beta 2 is out to bring out new features that will help in knowing iPhone's battery health.

If you want to sign up and test Apple's latest software update, keep in mind because it is a beta it's a little rough around the edges. This new update is interested to check because you can utilize battery health feature here. In an effort to address the situation, Apple a few weeks back instituted a battery replacement program whereby impacted users can receive a fresh battery for $29. You can then tune battery settings to your liking via the performance management feature.

Apple soon began offering replacement batteries at a discount.

The iOS 11.3 beta 2 gives the option to not download a third-party app or go to the Apple Store for this. Swiping through the home screen and app pages suddenly feel quicker than it did before, and in a lot of ways, it's like having a completely new, unused iPhone.

Apple's statement comes from a question Senator Thune asked on whether customers should get a rebate if they didn't pay the reduced price for the battery.

Power management will be disabled on all devices when the iOS 11.3 beta is installed, but if an iPhone experiences an unexpected shutdown, power management will automatically be turned on. This feature named as "Peak Performance Capability" will also users to tweak their battery performances.
