iOS 11.3 brings back Messages on iCloud, a feature pulled from iOS 11 during the beta testing period last year. It saves storage space on your device, makes iPhone backups smaller and gets all your texts and iMessages upon signing into a new iPhone, iPad or Mac.
The iOS 11.3 developer beta is now available and it brings a host of smaller changes and a few new features, like expanded medical record integration, four new Animoji, ARKit enhancements and more.
