Want to see the future of iOS? Then you’ll be pleased to know that you can download and install the first public beta of iOS 9.1 on your phone right now. To get the new beta on your phone, you’ll have to sign up as a public beta tester with Apple on this website.

As for what’s in the new beta, MacRumors informs us that iOS 9.1 “includes features for the iPad Pro, adding support for accessories like the Smart Keyboard and the Apple Pencil, both of which were designed for the larger-screened tablet” and “also includes support for Unicode 8, introducing a selection of new emoji like taco, burrito, unicorn face, hot dog, popcorn, turkey, cheese wedge, and more.”

So if you really want to try out some cool new emoji, you should check the beta out. iPad users, on the other hand, may be disappointed since they’ll be able to support two iPad Pro accessories that haven’t even been released yet.
