Apple rolls out iOS 11.1 update, brings new emojis, bug fixes”

The eligible device list includes iPhone 5s and later, iPad mini 2 and later, the iPad Air and later, and the 6th generation iPad touch. The security update added in iOS 11.1 was much needed because it patches the KRACK Wi-Fi exploit. iPhones or any other devices connected to WiFi are opened to hacking attacks due to KRACK.

Apple has now finally announced iOS 11.1 after testing the beta for a week.

Stay tuned and install the new iOS 11.1 if you have the supported iPhone or iPad.

To start with the emojis, the company has added over 70 new emojis including gender-neutral characters, expressive smiley faces, mythical creatures, food types, clothing options and more.

The iOS 11.1 update resolves an issue that caused some photos to appear blurry. It fixes an issue for some users where alternative keys were not displaying while using VoiceOver with Touch Typing.

Moving on, the update also brings fixes for the Krack Wi-Fi vulnerability and it also brings the access of the app switcher by pressing the edge of the display with 3D Touch. It also comes with fixes for issues like preventing data from being moved between managed apps and some 3rd-party Global Positioning System accessories that caused inaccuracies in location data.
