iPad Pro

Apple adding middle finger emoji in iOS 9.1

The minor upgrade entered beta shortly after Apple's iPhone 6S launch on September 9, and MacRumours has spilled the beans about its contents.

The most notable new feature is support for Unicode 8, which basically means that you'll have some new emoji to play with, including that infamous raised middle finger.

Other new emoji include a taco, burrito, unicorn face, hot dog, popcorn, turkey and cheese wedge, in case your messages are missing any of those things.

iPad Pro lands as 12.9-inch slate

Landing as a 12.9-inch tablet, the iPad Pro is notable bigger than the 9.7-inch traditional model and will dwarf the 7.9-inch iPad mini.

"iPad is the clearest expression for our vision of the future of personal computing. A simple, multi touch piece of glass that instantly transform into virtually anything you want it to be," Apple CEO, Tim Cook said in unveiling the slate. "Today, we have the biggest news in iPad, since the iPad."

The Pro's 12.9-inch panel features a stunning 5.6million pixels, with the slate's sizeable width the same as the height of the iPad Air 2.
