Apple adds new features to show battery health

Jan 24 (Reuters) - Apple Inc on Wednesday said iOS 11.3 added new features to show battery health and recommend if a battery needs to be serviced.

Apple confirmed in December that software in iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone SE models, which deals with dangers from ageing batteries, could slow down the phone's performance. Within days, Apple faced lawsuits over the phone slowing.(reut.rs/2EZgO3g) (Reporting by Sonam Rai in Bengaluru; Editing by Supriya Kurane)
