The iOS 12.1.1 update isn’t as big as the last update, but it is packing in important features. This is an upgrade for the iPhone and iPad running iOS 11, iOS 12 and iOS 12.1.

Here are the iOS 12.1.1 features worth upgrading for. This guide to what’s new in iOS 12.1.1 also includes a look at the new iOS 12 features and how it compares to iOS 11 if you haven’t updated yet.

While this is a major update it isn’t changing the look of iOS on your iPhone or iPad. We’ve been using Screen Time, Siri Shortcuts and also trying out Waze and Google Maps on Apple CarPlay, but now you get more new features.
