Good news for lovers of emojis. And really, who doesn’t love them? Apple is rolling out “hundreds” of new ones when it releases iOS 11.1.
The company announced today that the new emojis are adapted from those approved for Unicode 10. In addition, iOS 11.1 will “include characters announced on World Emoji Day, like Woman with Headscarf, Bearded Person, Breastfeeding, Zombie, Person in Lotus Position, and new food items, such as Sandwich and Coconut. Also included in the update is the Love-You Gesture, designed after the ‘I love you’ hand sign in American Sign Language.”
Apple said the new emojis will appear in the developer’s preview of iOS 11.1 next week and will also later be added to updates for iOS, macOS, and watchOS.
