It’s “World Emoji Day”, and Apple is celebrating the occasion by previewing new emoji that will be coming to Apple devices later this year. Say hello to the mind-blowing emoji, a coconut, T-Rex, and even a breastfeeding mum. In conjunction with World Emoji Day, Apple is also having a little fun in its iTunes Movies, using emoji to replace selected movie titles.
Some of the new emoji coming to Apple include Woman with Headscarf, Bearded Person, Sandwich, Star-Struck, Zebra, and Elf. These new emoji from Apple will be coming to iOS, macOS and watchOS later this year.
That’s not all, if you head on to iTunes Movies, you will see that the Cupertino company has replaced its usual featured movies section with emoji. Try to guess what movie the list emoji represents, no cheating.
If you think some of these emoji looks familiar, it’s because earlier this year, the Unicode Consortium showed off a list of 69 new emoji coming to Unicode 10 later this year. Unicode is usually the one who decide what emoji will be coming, and it’s good to know that Apple will be embracing them into their products.
While the Cupertino company did not unveil the exact release date of these new emoji, it is believed that it should be coming to the latest iOS 11, and macOS High Sierra updates scheduled for later this year.
