The news was already there in the market that the new upgrade will bless its users with a whole new range of emojis to play around with.

2. Use Google's two-factor authentication easily

When you add a Google account in iOS 8.4.1, you will be asked for a standard verification code instead of a password. This makes the process more straightforward and easy. So, next time you need to access settings or Gmail, you won't have to waste much of your precious time. Two-factor authentication will take care of it.

3. Switch from cellular network to Wi-Fi for calls.

When you upgrade to iOS 8.4.1 you gain the power of switching seamlessly between cellular networks and Wi-Fi for your calls. The only catch here is that your network must be compatible for the same. This works work EE in the UK and Sprint and T-mobile in the US. Follow this simple activation process, just head to the Wi-Fi calls entry in the Phone menu of Settings.

4. Connect to CarPlay wirelessly

iOS 8.4.1 gives you the liberty to connect your phone or tablet without using the Lightning cable. To set it up, start from the car side, press and hold the voice control button on the dashboard.

5. Use Siri to make speakerphone calls

Maybe you were unaware of the fact that Siri wasn't capable of launching speakerphone calls but with iOS 8.4.1 it is possible. Just ask the Apple’s digital assistant to call “on speaker”, it turns on the hands-free. This may come handy in many situations. Try using it next time.
With these new features in your hand you may be able to exploit the iOS 8.4.1 more. So get started.
Wishing you a very Happy Diwali
