It is not clear what improvements the first update to OS X El Capitan will bring, but it's likely to include bug fixes and performance improvements for issues that have been encountered following the operating system's official release.

Update: OS X 10.11.1 includes support for Unicode 8 and a range of new emoji like taco, burrito, cheese wedge, hot dog, middle finger, and unicorn head. The emoji are also included in iOS 9.1, which is currently in testing as well.
