With the iOS 15.4 update that was introduced today, Apple has added support for Emoji 14, introducing a selection of new emoji like melting face, biting lip, heart hands, and more. There are 37 new emoji and 75 skin tone additions in Emoji 14, resulting in a total of 112 characters.


New faces include melting face, saluting face, face with open eyes and hand over mouth, face with peeking eye, face with diagonal mouth, and dotted line face, while new emojis include biting lip and bubbles.

There are several new hand emojis, such as heart hands, rightwards hand, leftwards hand, palm down hand, palm up hand, hand with index finger and thumb crossed, index pointing at the viewer, along with an update to the handshake emoji.

Nest with eggs, empty nest, x-ray, crutch, playground slide, wheel, ring buoy, hamsa, mirror ball, jar, identification card, and low battery are new items, while plants and animals will include coral and lotus. As for fantasy characters, we can expect a new troll emoji, and eggs, beans, and pouring liquid make up new food items.

The new emoji are available on the iPhone and iPad with iOS 15.4 and iPadOS 15.4, plus the Mac with macOS Monterey 12.3.

You can NOT count the number of times I will send my girlfriend an empty battery emoji.

WHY does she not charge her phone until it's red.

Why God Whyyyyy?
Because she's a girl? Women are complicated beings hard to understand, and usually do things the opposite way.

For example, to get to photos, some open the Camera, then tap on the last photo, then tap on All Photos...

There are mysteries not worth investigating, because the answer may not be logical at all.
It's better to just go along with them and focus on all the excellent qualities they have and we don't.

Going back to the main topic: How exciting! A Troll emoji at last! That's innovations at its best, what took it this long?

I really wish they had a better system for searching emojis. There's so many these days that it's hard to scroll through and the keywords don't always bring up the right ones.
Why on Gods green earth would you spend time searching for an emoji??? Why not use the excellent functionality of language and just type the word or meaning of the emoji. Works great with all human beings I've tested it on!

Same fight I have with my wife daily. I see it sitting on the counter and pick it up, battery in the red. I take it to a charger and she wanders around looking for it. “Where’s my phone?!” Where it should be!

Even worse is she always forgets to plug it in at night, the only time it’s not in her hand being used. I gave her my 12 pro max and it had 97% health in October. It’s now at 88% lol

Ah good. Finally.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve corroded my face and needed an emoji to convey what was happening.

This is definitely the update ever!
I hope you mean covered your face. If you've been corroding your face, you may need physical & mental health care. Don't want you to end up like this guy.

Didn't iOS 15.3 just released? Am I missing something or was that a typo in the article?
People in the beta program are on iOS 15.3 and now going to iOS 15.4 with this latest upgrade.

All of my Apple devices are running beta software.
