What would the world be without emojis? Our texts would be a little less brighter, our Instagram stories a little duller.
So what better day to think about emojis than on World Emoji Day?
To celebrate the occasion, iOS will be getting a set of brand spanking new emojis later this year! There’ll be more than 70 new characters to brighten up all your texts, Apple announced in a blog post. The new emoji, based on Unicode 11.0, will diversify the already available characters with more options for hair styles, whether you have curly hair, red hair, grey hair, or no hair at all as well as more facial expressions.
There are also a handful of new animals like a peacock, lobster, parrot, and everyone’s favourite: new food! iOS users can expect to see these adorable new additions as iOS 12 updates roll out.
