You can only install it on certain iOS devices, like the iPhone 5S and later, the iPad Mini 2 and later, the iPad Air and later, and the sixth-generation iPod Touch.

The update notes mention no new features, but the security patch notes list fixes for issues with CoreText, Kernel, StreamingZip, WebKit, and the KRACK Wi-Fi vulnerability. If that is the case with you, then you will be glad to learn that Apple is now signing three firmware versions which you can downgrade to right away.

There's also a scarf, zebra, giraffe, fortune cookie, hedgehog, and more.

We've got new activities like sledding, curling and rock climbing, while the smiley line-up has been boosted by a crazy-eyed emoji, a shhh-ing emoji and a red-faced sweary emoji.

As usual, there are many improvements and bug fixes in tow too.

The update also brings a dedicated Radio app, which includes access to Beats 1.

Additionally, Apple is making watchOS 4.1 available for its wearables, and this release enables music streaming on Apple Watch Series 3 with Apple Music or iCloud Music Library.

The watchOS 4.1 update also brings the GymKit syncing, so users will be able to sync their activity with compatible gym equipment. Among those is one for the much-publicized KRACK Wi-Fi exploit (see "Wi-Fi Security Flaw Not As Bad As It's KRACKed Up To Be", 17 October 2017).
