Apple unveils hundreds of new emojis coming to iPhone and iPad

iPhone iOS 11 update may shrink battery life Apple stops iOS 11 upgrade, iOS 10.3.3 downgrade for some devices

Apple is planning to release a bunch of new emoji characters for iOS with the 11.1 release.

Getting back to the new batch of emoji that are packed into iOS 11.1 beta 2, you should expect hundreds of new toys for texting, including "more emotive smiley faces, gender-neutral characters, clothing options, food types, animals, mythical creatures and more".

Also, did I tell you about the new carling emoji?

India pledges to provide over 195 Dollars loan for Ethiopia
The agreement to establish the consultations was signed in the presence of Kovind and his Djiboutian counterpart Omar Guelleh. The forum is the first partner-country forum of its kind in Ethiopia and represents more than 100 Indian companies.

While the official release of iOS 11.1 is a little further down the line, developers and users of the iOS public beta will be able to get hands-on with the new emoji starting next week. Just disable your emoji keyboard on iPhone, iPad, Android, Facebook, or whatever else you use, and see for yourself.

The update also features characters previewed at the World Emoji Day on July 17, which include a woman with a headscarf as well as a bearded man, a breastfeeding woman, a zombie and a person in a lotus position. During the WWDC 2017, Apple had indicated its intention of bringing new emojis to iOS and it seems that you might soon be able to send new emojis to your friends.

But once the Consortium comes up with a new version, its up to the tech companies themselves (whether that's Apple, Google, Microsoft, or whoever) to actually create their own versions and implement them.
