Apple releases iOS 11.1 with new emoji, bug fixes, and more


After releasing a few point updates for iOS 11 last month and this month, Apple is now pushing out a more significant release.

iOS 11.1 is now available for download. It’s available to iPhone models from the iPhone 5s and up, iPad mini 2 and up, the iPad 5th gen, both iPad Air models, and all iPad Pro models.

As for what’s included, Apple is highlighting the new emoji in this update. 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.


The update to iOS 11.1 also includes some bug fixes and unspecified improvements, so there’s that to look forward to if you’re not big on emoji.

To get iOS 11.1, grab your iPhone or iPad and go into Settings > General > Software Update.

Apple also released watchOS 4.1 for the Apple Watch today. This update adds Apple Music streaming for the Apple Watch Series 3 with LTE, a new Radio app, and support for GymKit. With GymKit, you’ll be able to tap your Apple Watch to a compatible piece of gym equipment and have the two devices share information to help give you a more accurate picture of your workout.

You can download watchOS 4.1 by loading up the Watch app on your iPhone and going into General, then tapping Software Update.

    I guess I’ll be the first to ask. Does 11.1 include person to person Apple Pay? Or is this going to be in 11.1.x?

    I updated my iPhone yesterday. I went to the Bluetooth settings this morning and got a notice that new carrier settings were available. I manually clicked the notice to get the new settings. By the way I noticed that if I use the new quick setting menu to turn off Bluetooth that it is still ON in the deeper settings menu. Not sure if it supposed to work that way or what. I am still investigating.
