IOS 11 gets an emoji update ahead of iPhone X launch

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

iOS 11.1 delivers the long-promised new emoji as well as some important security fixes for iDevice owners.

After releasing a few point updates for iOS 11 last month and this month, Apple is now pushing out a more significant release. There are more than 70 new emoji included in iOS 11.1, including broccoli, a sled, a pie, a vampire, a hedgehog, a face with a monocle, a shushing face, and many more. Interestingly, Apple's note implies that it's necessary only for iPhone 7 models and later and for iPad Pro 9.7-inch and later iPad Pro models.

Here's how you can downgrade iOS 11.1 final version to iOS 11.0.3, iOS 11.0.2 or iOS 11.0.1 on iPhone, iPad or iPod.

The improvements to iOS photo handling include fixes for bugs that made some photos appear blurry, slowed down Live Photo effect playback, and prevented some images from appearing in the People album after restoring from an iCloud backup. It also brings back the popular 3D Touch App Switcher gesture for accessing the multitasking App Switcher interface.

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. Apple previously said it intentionally removed this feature from iOS because it was causing issues with the system.

As always with interim updates like this, we encourage some level of caution when updating.
