Apple on Wednesday seeded first developer betas of the upcoming iOS 11.1, macOS High Sierra 10.13.1, watchOS 4.1 and tvOS 11.1 software updates.

Available to Apple’s registered developers and members of the paid Apple Developer Program, the new betas can be deployed over the air to devices with an appropriate configuration profile.

What’s new in iOS 11.1
iOS 11.1 no longer provides haptic feedback when the wrong passcode is typed on the Lock screen and the keyboard now gives you multiple emoji suggestions like the MacBook Pro’s Touch Bar: you see the word that you wrote along with its suggestion and three emojis.
Other tidbits in iOS 11.1 include refresh heart rate design for your finished workouts in the Activity app that’s now more consistent with the Health app and some cool new animations when you scrub to the top of the page or hit a notification banner while in an app.
What’s new in watchOS 4.1
We’ll be installing these updates on our devices shortly to see if there are any other outward-facing new features. Feel free to report your own findings by shooting us a message at [email protected] or reach out to us on Twitter @iDownloadBlog.
