Apple has released a slew of major updates for its mobile and Mac operating systems. The focus of both the updates is on two things – bug fixes and emojis. Here’s a complete list of everything new in iOS 9.1 and Mac OS X 10.1.1
There are plenty of new emojis to choose from, including the middle finger!

iOS 9.1 brings the News app to UK. Sadly, there are no signs of an India release yet.
Apple’s new found love for emojis spills over to the Mac too, as the 10.11.1 update brings 150+ emojis to the Mac OS!Microsoft Office Fixes
Office on Mac has been a nightmare, especially since the launch of El Capitan. This update promises to address the issues for Office 2011 and 2016 both. Fingers crossed!
Apple Mail Fixes
Another app that was broken by El Capitan is Apple’s own Mail client. Apple claims to have fixed the missing messages and server error issues with this update.
Audio unit plugins, VoiceOver reality and other errors have also been addressed.
We have updated both the software and so far things look smoother than before. But it’s too early to thank Apple for fixing all the problems.
What about you? Have you updated? Are things better or worse for you?
