Emojis are popular thanks to Apple and everyone knows that the company was the innovator when it came to these emoticons. Other devices and operating systems have come with their own after a while, but Apple continues to be the original one. And now users have a reasons to rejoice: Apple is going to release hundreds of new emojis. As unbelievable as it may seem, all these emojis will become available next week for the beta 2 version of iOS 11.1. While at first only beta testers will be able to try them out, the new update should roll out on all devices by the end of October.
The emojis will become available for iPhones and iPads, and we are also expecting them to reach macOS 10.13.1 beta 2 and watchOS 4.1. beta 2 at the same time.
New characters and objects
The upcoming update will cover a wide range of things, from icons we wanted for a while to stuff we wouldn’t have even thought about.
“The new emoji are designed to reveal every detail and adapted from approved characters in Unicode 10. iOS 11.1 will also include characters announced on World Emoji Day like Woman with Headscarf, Bearded Person, Breastfeeding, Zombie, Person in Lotus Position and new food items such as Sandwich and Coconut. Also included in the update is the Love-You Gesture, designed after the “I love you” hand sign in American Sign Language.”
The upcoming has it all, including various fantasy characters such as wizards, vampires, fairies and mermaids. You should also expect a dinosaur, a giraffe, and some new clothing items such as a glove, a scarf and a hat. There are also many new faces and some new actions like climbing a mountain or going to the sauna.
