Following weeks of beta seeds, Apple today released the public version of iOS 11.1 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch with more than 70 new emoji, the ability to use 3D Touch to invoke the iOS app switcher, multiple emoji suggestions for the QuickType keyboard and other changes and bug fixes.
iOS 11.1 is an important update that brings a number of new features and improvements to the operating system. Perhaps the most notable feature introduced in this release are 70+ new emoji that feature additions like gender-neutral characters, clothing options, food types, emotive smiley faces, animals, mythical creatures and more.
The update also re-activates the 3D Touch gesture that was missing since the release of iOS 11.0. Users can now access the App Switcher by simply force tapping on the left edge of their 3D Touch enabled iPhone. Minor changes like a smoother scroll up animation have also been added in this release.
iOS 11.1 is available now, and can be installed immediately if you don’t want to wait. Apple is also already testing iOS 11.2, as it launched its first beta seed earlier this week.
