One week after rolling out iOS 11.3 beta 4, Apple has unleashed a new beta for developers to sink their teeth into.

Apple today released iOS 11.3 beta 5 to developers. The update is available over the air by going to Settings > General > Software Update, or it can be downloaded over the web by visiting Apple's Developer Center.

iOS 11.3 will be released to the public this spring. It'll bring with it several notable new features, including four new Animoji: a dragon, a bear, a skull, and a lion. Also included is ARKit 1.5 for better augmented reality and Business Chat for messaging businesses inside the Messages app.

Apple is also rolling out battery management features in iOS 11.3. This includes a Battery Health feature that'll tell you whether or not your phone's battery is at maximum capacity as well as its peak performance capability. The feature can tell you if your phone's performance is being affected because of an old battery, too, and allow you to turn that feature off if you'd like.
