Apple introduces iOS 11.1 beta 4—Get it for the weekend!

Apple on Friday introduced the fourth beta of iOS 11.1, an update that’s expected to introduce some big new features.

Among the changes, iOS 11.1 will feature several new emoji—which Apple has already detailed—including a vampire, pie, fortune cook, and mermaid. There’s also a crazy face, which pretty much sums up how we feel heading into the iPhone X’s November 3 launch.

The software also fixes a Reachability bug that reared its head when iOS 11 was introduced. Meanwhile, Apple is bringing back that 3D Touch multi-tasking gesture fans loved so much. See? Apple does listen to its customers.

While the update is said to be significant, it’s unclear if the software will introduce iCloud Messages or Apple Pay Cash, both features of which were delayed beyond iOS 11’s original September launch.

We’re expecting the release of iOS 11.1 to coincide with the launch of the iPhone X, which arrives in just a few weeks.
