Apple released iOS 11.1, an updated version of the iOS 11 operating system, on October 31, 2017. The iOS 11.1 is available on iPad, iPhone as well as iPod touch and comprises a range of new Unicode 10 emojis like crazy face, t-rex, vampire, fortune cookie, exploding head, love you gesture, giraffe, hedgehog, and much more. In addition to this, the iOS 11 update shows changes in terms of design in several emojis like the bee, snail, dolphin and whale characters, to name a few. The designs of the new emojis are more detailed as well as realistic when compared with existing designs.

The Photos iOS 11.1 app incorporates several improvements as it addresses issues like blurry photos, the swiping done between screen shots and live photo effects. Moreover, the update has resolved the problem which resulted in some photos not being displayed in the People album whenever users chose to restore their device via an iCloud Backup.

 

Fixing Bugs

In addition to this, the Reachability bug, a problematic issue since the release of iOS 11, has been resolved. Also, the inclusion of the 3D Touch App Switcher enables iPhone users to make a 3D Touch move on the left edge of the display as well as bring the App Switcher multitasking interface up.

There is also an in-built keyboard feature which offers multiple emoji symbols when a user types in a particular word. Other new features include a new camera icon in the Restrictions section, a faster animation for the lock screen and a new animation when a user taps the status bar to scroll upwards.

Moreover, there are many security improvements as well as bug fixes in the iOS 11.1. A big improvement is that the update resolves a major blind-spot in the WPA2 Wi-Fi standard. In other words, it addresses the issue of KRACK which enabled hackers to access modern Wi-Fi networks. Apple hasĀ  already released the iOS 11.0.3, which included only bug fixes rather than any feature updates.
