Sort Reviews

With this lastest version of iOS, the Apple users can now sort the reviews. It was a big issue with App Store that one could never tell why certain reviews are always on top. Now iOS 11.3 has solved this problem, by sorting reviews as, most critical, most helpgul, most favorable, and most recent.

Business Chats

Business chat after being tested at WWDC in June last year, it was totally forgotten. But now with release of iOS 11.3, business chat will appear in Spring too.

iBooks is Book now

This seems little strange, as there is no such purpose of simply renaming iBooks as Books. Apple must be having something hidden about it. Let’s wait and see.
