IOS 11.1 arrives with more than 70 new emoji

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

Well, they've finally arrived for the iPhone in the iOS 11.1 update.

The update notes mention no new features, but the security patch notes list fixes for issues with CoreText, Kernel, StreamingZip, WebKit, and the KRACK Wi-Fi vulnerability.

Don't panic if you can't see iOS 11.1 showing on your compatible iPhone, iPad or iPod touch straightaway, due to the high volumes of users trying to download the new software, things might be a little slower than usual.

Bring on the new emoji! This last fix might be particularly relevant to purchasers of the new iPhone X, who will doubtless spend part of the coming weekend restoring their iPhone backups to their shiny new devices.


Apple also fixed an annoying bug in its calculator app that was introduced with iOS 11.

The update also brings a dedicated Radio app, which includes access to Beats 1. To use 3D Touch to invoke the App Switcher just use a hard-press on the edge of the left side of your display.

In any case, if you've got an iOS device, go to Settings and then scroll into the General section. Apple previously said it intentionally removed this feature from iOS because it was causing issues with the system. Notably missing from iOS 11.1 are the promised person-to-person Apple Pay and AirPlay 2, both of which Apple initially promised for iOS 11 but still haven't shipped. Of course, if you're concerned about the KRACK exploits or regularly need to communicate about broccoli in emoji, there's no inherent need to wait.
