iOS 9.1 gets around to making some truly useful improvements: New emoji

iOS 9 logoiOS 9 is bringing improvements to Siri and multitasking to Apple's platform, but we're going to have to wait until iOS 9.1 to get a truly groundbreaking new feature: new emoji. Apple sent out the first iOS 9.1 beta today, and it includes a bumper crop of new emoji characters.

The folks at Emojipedia have a more complete list of the new characters, which include such luminaries as "nerd," "tornado," "unicorn," "levitating," and "reversed hand with middle finger extended." Most of the characters were introduced in Unicode 7 or 8, though some of the new characters apparently date all the way back to Unicode 1.1.

iOS 9.1 gets around to making some truly useful improvements: New emoji

We don't know when the final version of iOS 9.1 will be released, but beta versions were running on the iPad Pros that Apple had on display yesterday. The iPad Pro will be released in November, so the update will show up at some point between now and then (iOS 8.1 showed up in late October, a little over a month after version 8.0).
