After releasing a few point updates for iOS 11 last month and this month, Apple is now pushing out a more significant release.

Bring on the new emoji!

Finally, there's the option to force disconnect from a Wi-Fi network. It's available to iPhone models from the iPhone 5s and up, iPad mini 2 and up, the iPad 5th gen, both iPad Air models, and all iPad Pro models.

If you've got iOS 11 installed on a supported iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, definitely go and update, if only just for the new emoji. The update also fixes accessibility bugs that prevented alternative keys from displaying when using VoiceOver with touch typing, caused the VoiceOver rotor to always return to the default action in Mail, and kept the VoiceOver rotor from deleting messages.

Patriots Hold Off Chargers 21-13 for 4th Straight Win
The Chargers probably aren't good enough to overcome coaching and special teams blunders against a team like the Patriots. Curiously, especially given the weather conditions, Los Angeles made a decision to attempt a 51-yard field goal.

Apple have confirmed that iOS 11.1 fixes the KRACK attack security risk. The first developer preview for iOS 11.2 arrived this week, bringing some small but exciting improvements to the operating system.

iOS 11.1 is now available for download.

Apple's just released iOS 11.1, and it's packed with more than 70 new emoji, including new gender-neutral characters, animals, mythical creatures, Halloween emoji (just in time!), and the sure-to-be-a-new-favorite "swearing" face.

As always with interim updates like this, we encourage some level of caution when updating. Of course, if you're concerned about the KRACK exploits or regularly need to communicate about broccoli in emoji, there's no inherent need to wait.
