Apple just announced that hundreds of new emoji will make their way to iOS 11.1 in the near future. Including gender-neutral characters, various clothing options, mythical creatures, and more, these new emoji are adapted from approved characters in Unicode 10.

These new emoji will debut in a beta preview of iOS 11.1 next week, and will be available to everybody later this year for iOS, macOS, and watchOS.

    Can we worry about a stable OS and battery life improvement before we get”hundreds of new emoji”? This is the least stable OS I can remember. Feels more like a beta than a GM

    • I agree about your perception of iOS 11, but this is somewhat irrelevant. iOS 11 wouldn’t be any more stable if Apple wasn’t working on new emoji. These are just two very different things that don’t impact each other.

      • Cones1r

        I understand that. This OS needs some attention in a major way.

      So are you suggesting that it is best to stay on iOS 10 instead of going to 11? I currently have the 7…patiently waiting on iPhone X and I know that will ship with iOS11.

      • Cones1r

        Yes stay on 10. I just had to close out mail and relaunch because it got stuck in search. This has been happening a lot in iOS 11. Still seems like a beta to me.

        Maybe you need to do a full restore. No problems with bugs on my end.

        I agree with Rob C.

        Doing a full restore helped me out a lot. No issues on my end.

      • Cones1r

        Your device isn’t glitchy at all???? What do you have? I’m on a 7 Plus.

      • eastsid3rob

        A few app crashes every now and then, but that’s about it. I usually do a hard reset when it happens. I have a 7 Plus as well.

        I was lazy and didn’t restore this time (usually do) but iOS 11 has been surprisingly smooth on a 7 Plus.

      • Mr_Coldharbour

        Stay on iOS 10 for as long as you can.

    And this is more worthy of Apple’s time than battery life, contacts not being able to added, group facetime, and other issues?
