Apple today released iOS 11.1, the first major update to the iOS 11 operating system available on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. iOS 11.1 comes more than a month after iOS 11 first released to the public. User can update their devices to iOS 11.1 over-the-air, just simply go to the Settings - General - Software Update.


The version introduces a range of new Unicode 10 emoji: crazy face, pie, pretzel, t-rex, vampire, exploding head, face vomiting, shushing face, love you gesture, fortune cookie, pie, hedgehog, so on. The update also returns 3D Touch App Switcher gestures for multitasking, as well as built-in keyboard in iOS 11.1 now offers up multiple emoji symbols, and several other small tweaks.


Along with these major features, iOS 11 introduces a fix for a Reachability bug that's been present since the release of iOS 11. There's a new camera icon under Restrictions, a new animation when tapping the status bar to scroll upwards, and a faster unlock animation.

There are also many bug fixes and security improvements in iOS 11.1. Most notably, the update addresses a major vulnerability in the WPA2 Wi-Fi standard that is used to protect many modern Wi-Fi networks. The exploit, which is now fixed, let attackers use a key reinstallation attack or "KRACK" to decrypt network traffic to sniff out sensitive information.
