iOS 11.1 Has 70 New Emoji and It’s Available Now

Published On: , by MacSoftAdmin

For those who are not aware that a new update is available now then it’s a good day for you to be on this page. iOS devices need an update because iOS 11.1 has just been released from beta and everyone who wishes can get their hands on this new update. As expected, there are new characteristics and advancements made with this update. This also happens to be the first real update for the iOS 11.

With this update, you can have access to the numerous new available emojis.  You must have the new update to be able to send and receive this new emojis. Without the update, if you try to use these features all you get is a generic empty box. There are about seventy newly included characters ranging from food (pie), creatures, (vampires, mermaids), Dinosaurs, Giraffes, Hedgehogs (animals) just to mention but a few.


When the iOS was first released, very careful observers will notice that one feature disappeared for a while. Can anyone help me out here? Well, I am talking about the 3D Touch app-switcher multitasking gesture. This app allows you to apply pressure to the left part of your phone’s display and eventually trigger 3D touch, and now you can swipe from left to right to switch amidst two apps. We think the reason it went away for some time was to give Apple some time to make one or two modifications to it before releasing it back to the market. This feature will function slightly different in the iPhone X but from the 6s and later generations of the iPhone you can use the 3D touch features.

With iOS 11.1 there is now a new level of accessibility features, allowing for a more reachable mode. Also, you will feel the smooth scrolling.


As mentioned above, there were over seventy new releases of emoji characters. These new features are really impressive as you will later come to discover. Some of the newly included characters are Smiley’s (expressive), clothes, gender characters, animals, mythical creatures and so much more.
