Apple releases iOS 11.1 with more than 100 new emoji

Apple releases iOS 11.1, watchOS 4.1, tvOS 11.1, and macOS 10.13.1

Emoji superfans will probably already be familiar with many of those going live in the iOS 11.1 update - Apple confirmed what some of them would look like earlier this month. The release comes one day after Apple released the first beta of iOS 11.2 to developers.

Apple has rolled out new versions of its mobile operating systems for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Apple Watch. To close the App Switcher just use the Home button.

You can get the iOS 11.1 update either in Settings General Software Update or via iTunes.

iOS 11.1 features over 100 new emojis such as Woman with Headscarf, Bearded Person, Breastfeeding, Zombie and more.

There are new animals including a giraffe, zebra, hedgehog, a dinosaur and a cricket.




iOS 11.1 also brings with it a slew of accessibility improvements, including braille support for Grade 2 input, VoiceOver access to multi-page PDFs, better VoiceOver rotor actions for announcing incoming notifications, and an improved VoiceOver rotor actions menu when removing an app from the app switcher.

Beyond the merriment of new emoji to play with, iOS 11.1 delivers an important patch for the worrying Krack Wi-Fi vulnerability. Some existing emoji have also been updated with more realistic designs, such as the bee, dolphin, octopus, and snail.

The watchOS 4.1 update also brings the GymKit syncing, so users will be able to sync their activity with compatible gym equipment.

In addition, the update includes some twenty-odd security fixes. Go here to view the update's full release notes.
