It’s a big day for Apple/iOS users. 70 new emojis are now at your disposal!
Ahead of the launch of iPhone X on Friday, Apple has released the first .x release of iOS 11. The update features several bug fixes and adds a boatload of new emoji.
Just in time for Halloween, iOS 11.1 includes several spooky emoji: male and female draculas, zombies, and wizards are now available in the keyboard. Male/female not your thing? There are also a pair of gender-neutral emojis — Apple’s first.
There’s also now an orange heart, two dinosaurs, a sandwich, a face having their mind blown, a face cursing, a new vomiting face, and genies.
Here are all of the new emoji in iOS 11.1:
iOS 11.1 also brings back the 3D Touch app switcher, which in iOS 10 had let users pull from the left side of the screen to switch apps. Due to a technical issue, the feature was temporarily unavailable in iOS 11.0.
Apple also released new updates for Watch (4.1) and MacOS (10.31.1), both of which include support for the new emoji.
The new emoji were approved for release on all devices earlier this year. They should be arriving on Android in the months ahead.
