Apple releases iOS 11.1 with 70 new emoji and several bug fixes

Today, the very day after Apple released iOS 11.2 containing SiriKit for HomePod developers, the company released iOS 11.1 for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The update brings back the 3D Touch multitasking app switcher, a fix for the KRACK Wi-Fi exploit, improved support for braille devices, a fix that takes care of some issues that the Apple Watch had with data hand off, and most important of all, 70 new emoji.

The update to iOS 11.1 weighs in at 311.3 MB and still AWOL are Apple Pay Cash and AirPlay 2. The former allows users to make or receive peer-to-peer payments in iMessage. The latter allows users to stream audio and video, adding multi-room audio streaming with this new version.

Getting back to the emoji for a second, if used in an email or text, the recipient of the missive must also have iOS 11.1 installed to see the image correctly. Otherwise, the emoji will not be displayed in the proper manner.

To install iOS 11.1 on your compatible iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, go to Settings > GeneralSoftware Update.
