More than 70 new emoji will be coming soon to iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and Mac, including new characters with red hair, gray hair and curly hair, a new emoji for bald people, more emotive smiley faces and additional emoji representing animals, sports and food. The new emoji are available in today’s developer and public beta previews of iOS 12.1, and will be available in upcoming software updates for iOS, macOS and watchOS.
New emoji include moon cake, red gift envelope, nazar amulet, softball, frisbee, lacrosse, luggage, compass, hiking boot, llama, mosquito, swan, raccoon, kangaroo, lobster, parrot, peacock, bagel, salt, cupcake, leafy greens, mango, and more.
Apple's new emoji characters are created based on the approved characters in Unicode 11.0. The company says it's working with the Unicode Consortium to add more disability-themed emoji to the keyboard for Unicode 12.0, slated for release in 2019.
