The new emojis are based on the Unicode 8 standard, which is a set of symbols and words that the tech industry uses to make sure emojis are consistent across different devices. We first learned about these new emojis when the developer version of iOS 9.1 launched in September, but now they're available for everyone. 

The update also makes it easier to take Live Photos if you own an iPhone 6S or iPhone 6S Plus. Now, when you snap Live Photos, your iPhone will be able to tell when raise or lower your iPhone so that those moments aren't captured in the Live Photo.

To update your iPhone to iOS 9.1, head over to Settings>General>Software Update. Then from there, you'll be prompted to agree to Apple's terms and conditions before proceeding with the update. It's best to connect to a Wi-Fi network when installing the update to avoid using a lot of data.
