    In celebration of World Emoji Day tomorrow, Apple has shared details on new emoji that are coming to iOS devices this fall following the Unicode 12 emoji release.

    Unicode 12 brings 59 new emoji characters, 75 with gender variations, and 230 total emojis when gender variations and different skin tones are counted.

    Orangutan, sloth, otter, skunk, and flamingo are the new animals included in the update, while new food items include garlic, onion, waffle, falafel, butter, oyster, beverage box, maté, and ice cube.

    New faces, gestures, and poses include yawning face, pinching hand, person kneeling, person standing, and new people holding hands options that are both gender and skin tone inclusive.

    Several new accessibility-related emojis are included, such as ear with hearing aid, deaf person, mechanical arm/leg, person with cane, person in wheelchair, guide dog, wheelchair (manual and motorized), and probing cane.

    [​IMG]
    Other miscellaneous emoji include Hindu Temple, auto rickshaw, parachute, ringed planet, diving mask, yo-yo, kite, safety vest, sari, one-piece swimsuit, briefs, shorts, ballet shoes, banjo, diya lamp, axe, drop of blood, bandage, stethoscope, chair, razor, white heart, and circles and squares in various new colors.

    A full list of the emoji included in Unicode 12 are listed on the Emojipedia site.

    Last year, Apple released new emoji in an iOS 12.1 update released in October, and the launch of new 2019 emoji could follow a similar timeline. New emoji won't be included in iOS 13 at launch, but could come in one of the first major updates to the new operating system.

    No jumping the shark emoji, seems like a missed opportunity.

    Emoji don't take away from other Apple initiatives.

    There are so many emojis that Apple needs better categorization of them in the keyboards. It takes too long to scroll around to find them. Also, there's no indicator of which ones have variations.

    Yeah, that's what everyone was asking for... emojis. Not better devices.

    It blows my mind that Apple hasn't implemented a search bar for emojis

    I hope these are just added in iOS 13, what is the point of delaying them to iOS 13.1 when they're already made?

    Add the emblem in the Peruvian flag please! Probably not an Apple issue though.

    I am anticipating a lot of people will complain about emojis, as usual. But hey. If it does not make any difference in your life, you can simply ignore it. Other people welcome these additions.

    Apple usually delays the release of these on Apple products because they have to be revised and polished up. But we will see.

    Apple doesn’t make the emoji, they’re a Unicode standard that Apple conforms to.

    Anyone who works in software development knows this. There isn’t just one team at Apple doing everything.
