Everyone likes to use emoji while texting, therefore there is a good news to the iOS and Mac OS users. Apple announced that it will be adding new emoji to its iOS, macOS, and watch OS platforms later on this year.
It displayed some new characters that are the symbol of celebration of “World Emoji Day’. The new Emoji appear to be Apple’s take on the most recent Unicode 10 standard, which among other things, added 56 new emoji to the lexicon. Those emoji includes soon to be classics like the “Exploding Head,’ “Crazy Face”, Face with Monocle,” and Sandwich emoji, along with an oddly long list of fantasy-themed emoji.
If any of this sounds familiar, that’s because Unicode officially released by the Unicode Consortium earlier this year on 20th of June. But Unicode just decides what the new emoji and the text characters are. It’s then up to manufacturers to create and release designs for the emoji on their own, which usually takes a few months after the standard is announced. That largely depends on the company, however: the Android O beta, for instance, already has a emoji to use.
Apple did not mention that when the new emoji will be launched, but it seems likely that they will be packaged into the iOS 11 and macOS High Sierra updated scheduled for this all.
