American tech giant, Apple marked 'World Emoji Day' by unveiling a few never-been-seen-before emoticons, which are slated to coming in the new iOS 12, Mojave macOS and watchOS 5 this fall.
The company is bringing a total of 70 new Emojis in the upcoming major software update. "The new emoji designs, created based on approved characters in Unicode 11.0, include even more hair options to better represent people with red hair, gray hair and curly hair, a new emoji for bald people, and new smiley faces that bring more expression to Messages with a cold face, party face, pleading face and a face with hearts," Apple said in a statement.
Apple is also adding new animals including a kangaroo, peacock, parrot and lobster. For that chat between foodies and the health conscious, there are new emojis for mango, lettuce, cupcake, moon cake and other popular items.
Users can also expect a new theme for superheroes, leaders, sports personalities, a softball, Nazar amulet and infinity symbol.
Even the company's senior executives too joined the party and now have emojis for images on Apple's official profile webpage. All of them look funny and have expressive eyes and faces in the pictures, including Apple CEO, Tim Cook, Jonathan Ive (chief design officer), Katherine Adams (senior vice president and general counsel), Philip W. Schiller (senior vice president worldwide marketing), Eddy Cue (senior vice president Internet Software and Services) and Craig Federighi (senior vice president software engineering), among others.
The new emojis will be released through software updates free of cost. Some will come in the upcoming iOS 12, Mojave macOS and watchOS 5 in September, and the rest of them will be rolled out in an incremental update later in the year.
Additionally, Apple is also bringing new Animojis with tongue expressions for iPhone X including Koala, T.rex, ghost, tiger and more.
Also, the iOS 12 will have new camera effects including filters, text and stickers to messages and FaceTime. New filters like comic book and watercolour add personality to photos and videos, new labels and shapes let users add captions and titles to highlight parts of an image. Stickers can also be added using iMessage sticker packs.
