iOS 9.1 rolls out with always-on Siri and new emoji

New emojis and better Live Photos: iOS 9.1 is here.

The new update also includes new characters like a turkey, a range of religious buildings and new faces that include a face that looks sick, another that looks injured and one that has its mouth zipped up.

SAN FRANCISCO (CNNMoney) — If you’ve been itching to text your mom a sad lion, Tweet a taco or email your significant other a unicorn, the wait is over. The new emoji don’t show for people on computers or phones that haven’t yet received the new characters, which will just show empty boxes instead. If you have an iPhone 6S or a 6S Plus, there is also an update for Live Photos, which now sense when the phone is raised or lowered to avoid capturing unnecessary movement. Apple also released minor updates to fix bugs in OS X El Capitan and (which is now at version 10.11.1) and the Apple Watch (now at watchOS version 2.0.1).

Because iOS 9.1 is a major update, once it is installed users will be taken through the usual startup page, requiring you to login and select from some settings before you get back into the phone. That allows the phone to take a second and a half of video either side of photographs, allowing them to be animated — but it often meant that the video taken after the picture just showed the phone being lowered to put it back in your pocket. iOS 9.1 fixes that problem by adding the ability for the phone to sense when it is being lowered. That app — which saw its US launch with iOS 9 last month — allows users to pick from certain topics and publishers and then get personalised news subscriptions.

Here you can write a commentary on the recording "iOS 9.1 rolls out with always-on Siri and new emoji".
