Apple is planning to add new emojis on iPhone, Mac and Apple Watches, close to over 60, never seen before emojis which will enhance the chatting experience of users. These emojis will be added as part of the keyboard where all the current emojis are located. There were developments on these new emojis earlier this year and now Apple has made it official.
On the occasion of world emoji day today Apple came with this announcement to add a new variety of emojis. As mentioned on Apple’s blog, these emojis will be a part of iPhones and Macs by fall and users will be able to choose from the categories of animals, activities, smiley faces and food.
One of the most interesting updates of the emojis is the ones where people clasp hands. This can be customized now in all the shades of skin tones, close to over 75 unique combinations. The company spoke in detail about these new emojis in their blog:
Following Apple’s proposal to the Unicode Consortium last year to introduce more disability-based emojis, a new guide dog, an ear with a hearing aid, wheelchairs, a prosthetic arm and a prosthetic leg will be available in the emoji keyboard. Celebrating diversity in all its many forms is integral to Apple’s values and these new options help fill a significant gap in the emoji keyboard.
Many additional emoji categories are getting exciting updates with a new smiley face for yawning, a one-piece swimsuit, new food items including a waffle, falafel, butter and garlic, and new animals like the sloth, flamingo, orangutan and skunk.
