Apple iOS 11.1 and watchOS 4.1 are here: What's new?

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. It's been through many rounds of beta testing, too, so we sort of already knew that it was coming and what it might feature.

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

iOS 11.1 is finally available for download and users around the world are slowly and gradually installing the update to see what it has to offer. You can only install it on certain iOS devices, like the iPhone 5S and later, the iPad Mini 2 and later, the iPad Air and later, and the sixth-generation iPod Touch.

There's also a scarf, zebra, giraffe, fortune cookie, hedgehog, and more.

Most notably, there's now support for Unicode 10.0 emoji characters.

Beyond the merriment of new emoji to play with, iOS 11.1 delivers an important patch for the worrying Krack Wi-Fi vulnerability.

The update also brings a dedicated Radio app, which includes access to Beats 1. You'll find a Wi-Fi toggle in the Control Center with this update, and Apple has enabled GymKit.

The update also brings a number of fixes, including the return of using 3D Touch on the left edge of your screen to open up the app switcher. Go here to view the update's full release notes.
