Download iOS 11.1 Public Beta 2 for iPhone & iPad

"Our benchmarking data shows that, rather than intentionally degrading the performance of older models, Apple actually does a good job of supporting its older devices with regular updates that maintain a consistent level of performance across iOS versions", the release said.

Here's hoping that Apple quickly releases a patch to fix the battery and performance issues.

Technology giant Apple has unveiled hundreds of new emojis, which will include gender-neutral characters.

The iPhone 5s was the first device to be tested as it is the oldest device capable of running iOS 11 and also because the 2013 released version was the first iPhone to get a 64-bit A7 chip. iOS 11 is limited to 64-bit devices.

The new iOS 11 including many features like smarter new Siri, document scanner, searching handwritten notes, Do not disturb feature while driving, live Photo, new file app, multi-tasking feature for iPhone and iPad, drag and drop feature in iPad and much more. There are several new food choices too in the iOS 11.1 emojis. Apple is using the American Sign Language "I Love You" hand signal. The figures for iOS 9, 10, and 11 are nearly as steady as a rock for two years. People who haven't upgraded their device or have already upgraded their devices with the latest iOS 11.1 Beta 2 update, may see empty boxes as emojis as some of the devices are still not compatible with this latest update. You can update it here from App Store. It does, however, concede that updates might add new features that use more resources or require more processing power, which might affect "people's perception of performance".

But a new report has found this is not the case, and there might be another explanation. However, what caught our attention and the attention of many other users is the inclusion of the Unicode 10 emoji. We would let you update with all the announcements made by Apple in the coming days.

The new operating system has not yet notified its users of any security updates.
