Apple today seeded the third beta of an upcoming iOS 11.1 update to developers, one week after releasing the second iOS 11.1 beta and a month after releasing the iOS 11 update to the public.

Registered developers can download the iOS 11 beta from Apple's Developer Center or over-the-air once the proper configuration profile has been installed from the Developer Center.


iOS 11.1 introduces a range of new Unicode 10 emoji like crazy face, pie, pretzel, t-rex, vampire, exploding head, face vomiting, shushing face, love you gesture, brain, scarf, zebra, giraffe, fortune cookie, pie, hedgehog, and more.


Several emoji have also seen some small design changes in iOS 11.1, including the dolphin, octopus, bee, snail, and whale characters, among others. The new designs are more detailed and realistic than existing designs.

The update also brings back the 3D Touch App Switcher gesture that has been missing from iOS 11 since its release. With the return of the gesture, iPhone users can once again 3D Touch at the left edge of the display to bring up the multitasking App Switcher interface.

A few other small features are included in the iOS 11.1 beta. The built-in keyboard in iOS 11.1 now offers up multiple emoji symbols when using an emoji-related word like "cake" or "happy," with each of the suggestions displayed at the end of the predictive text suggestions.

There's also an updated camera icon under Restrictions, a new animation when tapping the status bar to scroll upwards, and a faster unlock animation.

iOS 11 marks a major update to the operating system with systemwide design tweaks, a new Lock screen experience, a revamped Control Center, ARKit, new app features, and an entirely new interface for the iPad that includes a Dock, Drag and Drop support, and a redesigned App Switcher for better than ever multitasking.

Update: Today's beta fixes a Reachability bug that prevented the iOS 11 Cover Screen with Notifications from being accessible in the middle of the iPhone's display. Apple engineering chief Craig Federighi recently said a fix for the issue, which has been present since iOS 11 launched, would be coming soon.

Update 2: The new beta is now available for public beta testers.

iOS 11.1 Beta 3 - 16th Oct

iOS 11.1 Beta 4 - 21st Oct

---

Edit: Anything below here seemed off the timeline. With Beta 4 and the build number, it is very likely that this is the GM/Public Release one.

iOS 11.1 GM - 31st Oct/1st Nov

iPhone X - 3rd Nov (iOS 11.1 Public)

iOS 11.1 Public for rest of eligible devices - 6th Nov.

This should be the timeline. I was discussing this with my friends earlier.

Only point i disagree with is the GM. I think the live version will release on Nov 1, I think releasing it the same day as iPhone X will be too much of a fuster cluck.

11.1 has been really bad for me. 11.0 was better in terms of not locking up when app updates were downloading and random freezes elsewhere.

My Apple TV 4K on tvOS 11.1 has also been really wonky. Bad handoffs with Dolby Vision and causing purple screens. No issues with original tVOS 11. Hopefully just part of the beta process.

Two in work complaining about it today. So it doesnt mean people arent because people at your work are fine.
Likewise someone saying they have issues doesn’t mean everyone is. iOS 11 is just fine.

Lol I leave these replies. Like somehow that means people like us, who have issues, are irrelevant.
Just like people who have issues can condemn a product just because “they’re” having problems.

Honestly, couldn’t care less about emojis.

Oh, and either fix or throw-out that train-wreck TV app. Makes me buy less from iTunes because I can’t rely on it to play movies on planes, low WiFi areas, random Monday’s, etc.
