On October 21, 2015, iOS 9.1 is released and it comes with over 150 new emoji and Live Photo improvements. It also fixes bugs in tools like CarPlay and the app switcher.

The new emoji includes a hugging face, a thinking face, a face with rolling eyes, prayer beads, a turkey, a crab, a hot dog, a cricket bat, a Menorah with nine branches, a mosque, a synagogue, popcorn, a taco, a burrito, a unicorn, a cheese wedge, a unicorn head, a champagne bottle and a middle finger.

Also, with iOS 9.1, Live Photos can sense when your iPhone is raised or lowered. This prevents movements that you do not want to record to end up on Live Photos. Apple added an option in the Settings app to enable or disable photos of your contacts in the Messages lists. There are also three new planet wallpapers added in iOS 9.1, including Jupiter, Mars and Neptune.

Issues wherein the Calendar app becomes unresponsive in the Month view and where Game Center crashes for many users have been fixed. An issue has been resolved where content of an app was zoomed into unnecessarily for some iOS users.

As of Monday, 61 percent of people who use Apple's mobile gadgets had upgraded to iOS 9, according to Apple's developer site. Another 30 percent were still using iOS 8, and 9 percent were using older versions of Apple's mobile software.

A bug where a gray bar in the body of an Audio Message remained has been fixed. And an issue that caused activation errors on some carriers has been fixed. Lastly, a bug that prevented some apps from updating from the App Store was fixed.

Apple released iOS 9 last month. The software includes changes designed to make iPhones and iPads far more able to predict an owner's needs and interests. Among some of the new features for iOS 9, it can automatically suggest apps to load or people to contact based on a person's usage patterns. iOS 9 also comes with updates to Siri to give the voice assistant a new interface and allow it to remind a user of appointments without being told to ahead of time.
