Posted in Apple News, iOS on 06/10/2017 by Chris Hauk


Apple has announced hundreds of new emoji that are coming soon to iOS 11 in the iOS 11.1 update.

The new emoji are designed to reveal every detail and adapted from approved characters in Unicode 10. iOS 11.1 will also 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.

The update will include more emotive smiley faces, gender-neutral characters, clothing options, food types, animals, mythical creatures and more.

The new emoji will debut in the upcoming developer and public beta previews of iOS 11.1, which is due for release next week. The emoji will be available in upcoming public releases of iOS, macOS and watchOS.
