If you end up struggling to express your self with mere words and switch to emojis, then we have excellent news – Apple has unveiled the first look at a few of the new emoji designs which might be heading to iOS units later this year.
There is a whole of 59 new emoji designs, with some celebrating variety, in addition to fun new additions to current categories too, introducing all the pieces from new disability-themed emojis to a yawning smiley face and a flamingo.
One among Apple’s largest changes is launching a serious update to the ‘holding hands’ emoji, sometimes used to symbolize couples and relationships, as customers can now choose any combination of skin tone and gender to personalize the couple in the emoji to symbolize their relationship. There can even be more disability-themed icons according to Apple’s proposal to the Unicode Consortium, with new emojis that depict guide dogs, hearing aids, prosthetic legs and arms, wheelchair users, and lots of more.
“This isn’t meant to be a complete listing of all possible depictions of disabilities, however, to offer a preliminary place to begin for higher representation for variety within the emoji universe,” Apple clarified in its proposal to the Unicode Consortium last year.
As for the animals and food updates, you may lastly be able, to sum up, your weekend without saying a phrase with the launch of the sloth and waffle emojis. There’s also new flamingo and orangutan emojis, or falafel and garlic emojis.
