The release of iOS 9.1 has unleashed many new features for iPhone users. The development of 150 new emojis has excited texters everywhere; now you can express yourself in even more unique ways when you text your homecoming date (scroll down to Annie’s response to “How do I get a boy to ask me to homecoming?” in our “Ask Annie” article).

On a more serious note, the page to the left of your iPhone home screen now automatically loads news. You can customize your preferences so that it streams news that is specific to your interests, or simply scroll over once in a while and glance at the headlines.
