    More than 200 new emojis will be coming to iOS later this year, with the Unicode Consortium officially approving the final 2019 emoji list.

    Emojipedia has a full list of all the emoji we can expect to see in 2019, including flamingo, otter, waffle, sloth, white heart, people holding hands, ice cube, snorkel, orangutan, juice box, falafel, and more.

    The 2019 emoji lineup will introduce new emojis to represent people with disabilities, such as person in wheelchair, guide dog, service dog, and deaf person. It will also include support for mixed race couples.

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

    Now that the Unicode Consortium has finalized the list of 2019 emojis, smartphone makers, social media networks, and others are free to implement the new characters, but must design the new icons first.

    The emoji in the Emojipedia images are just representations of the new emoji characters and do not reflect the design that Apple and other smartphone makers will use.


    It typically takes Apple several months to introduce support for new emoji characters. In 2018, for example, Apple did not add the new 2018 emojis until the October iOS 12.1 update. Apple is likely to do something similar for iOS 13, so we could see the new emoji come as part of an iOS 13 update after the new operating system is released.

    How fitting that the first of the new additions perfectly sums up the whole story.

    I actually saw someone complaing on Facebook that there was no left leg amputee emoji so maybe this will be added next year.

    That’s awesome! Put these on a new XS and it should be good for at least another $200! [​IMG]

    In my bets grumpy old man voice:
    I'll use the occasional smiley face here and there, but these endless emojis are ridiculous.

    Oh… I thought that'd be a step too far.

    I foresee that languages will disappear, people will not talk, and everyone will just use emoji's to converse with one another.

    It's already happening in restaurants and cafes where you see a lot of people sitting together with their faces buried in their phones. The whole night goes by and no one said a word until it was time to leave, saddest thing I've ever seen.

    Needs a penis emoji to be complete. I guarantee that one would get some use.

    And kids on iPad's for the entire duration of the dinner. At times with noise cancelling headphones. It pisses me off to no limit.

    Any bell-end emoji would have to be nicknamed "the Cook".........

    Finally mixed race couples in 2019.

    I wonder how the blind person is going to use the blind person emoji. Interesting.

    I'm still waiting for the bubble tea emoji.

    Also it would be cool if they had Chinese Zodiac animals. A set of 12 animals with a distinct Chinese zodiac design.

    Where is the buddha emoji? Seems like a very obvious one. It's not a religion so I don't see the problem.

    I like all these emojis, but someone needs to come up with a better system to sort through and find the one to use.
