Apple has released iOS 11.1 and it comes with over 70 new emojis. It is the return of 3D Touch multitasking and a handful of bug fixes. Some of the new emojis contains a cursing smiley face, a vampire, a hedgehog, Chinese takeout, a sandwich and a mermaid. Some existing emojis have been tweaked to improve their design as well. Once you update your OS, the new selections will appear on your keyboard, and if someone sends you one of the new emojis, they won’t show up properly on your phone until you’ve updated.
As for 3D Touch multitasking, Apple had included it in previous operating systems but removed it. However, now you will again be able to touch the left side of the display with a little pressure in order to get back to your app carousel.
Along with these improvements and additions, iOS 11.1 also comes with a handful of security updates. Most notably it is a fix for a major WPA2 WiFi vulnerability. Prior to this update, attackers could use a key installation attack, aka Krack, to pull out sensitive data and personal information by decrypting network traffic. That vulnerability has been patched for Apple mobile devices with iOS 11.1 and you can check out the full list of included security updates here.
The update is available now for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch and it’s just in time for the release of iPhone X.
