Apple is moving quickly to wrap up development on iOS 11.1, as the company on Monday released the fifth beta of the software. The latest release comes just a few days after Apple introduced iOS 11.1 beta 4.

With the iPhone X on the horizon, it makes sense why Apple is so eager to complete development on iOS 11.1. The new software includes hundreds of new emoji, the return of the fan-favorite 3D Touch multitasking gesture, and several bug fixes.

What isn’t clear is if iOS 11.1 will include Apple Pay Cash and iCloud for iMessage. These are two big features Apple touted at WWDC over the summer but were not included in the release of iOS 11 back in September.

Developers should see the new beta as an over-the-air update. Public beta testers can likely expect a new beta to be released today or tomorrow.
