iOS 9.1 is being rolled out to everyone today, bringing with it a host of new features as well as hundreds of new emoji to enjoy.
Siri will be on hand more than ever as the digital assistant will always be waiting to hear you say, “Hey, Siri.” You’ll be able to call for assistance or test her knowledge and quick wit by just speaking rather than pressing and holding the button to activate her.
iPhone and iPad users will have plenty of new emoji to use in messages too. iOS 9.1 also includes support for Unicode 7 and 8, so that means you’re getting your hands on emoji like the controversial middle finger, as well as the taco, burrito, champagne bottle, unicorn head, and the cheese wedge.
Naturally, there are a number of bug fixes taken care of in iOS 9.1. The release notes say that there’s a patch for the Notification Centre bug that saw iPhone and Messages notifications appearing on the lock screen even when disabled, and a fix for a memory corruption problem in OpenGL.
Meanwhile, iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus users will see a change in Live Photos. Now, the feature will sense when the iPhone is raised or lowered, which should prevent the recording of unnecessary movements.
You can download iOS 9.1 on the iPhone 4S and above, iPad 2 and above, all iPad Mini models and the fifth-generation iPod Touch. The update was previously available as a public beta, but is now finalised and rolling out to all iOS devices.
