It’s Official: These 72 New Emojis Are Coming To Your iPhone
Drop what you’re doing, and get ready to communicate in 72 new ways. You heard me, the Unicode Consortium (the emoji people) just released a whole new emoji keyboard, complete with 72 images users have been yearning for. Now you have facepalm, avocado, and shrugging emojis at your disposal—which is seriously exciting for both texting fanatics (like me) and everyday iPhone users. (The avocado emoji is finally here, y’all!)
Want to let someone know you’re expecting? Swiftly send them a pregnant woman emoji. Boom, expectation announcement done. Want to create an idyllic wedding scene? You can now give your emoji bride a virtual groom and give them champagne glasses to clink. Want to communicate that you’re taking a selfie without whipping out Snapchat? Text someone the selfie arm. That should get the job done. With icons of bacon, pancakes, and croissants now available, you can build yourself the emoji breakfast of a lifetime—and do so. Much. More.
But don’t get too excited. These little beauties won’t be hitting your phone until Apple and Google roll out new keyboards, so your virtual champagne glass clinking will have to wait a little while longer. There’s no word yet on when this will happen, so stay on the lookout for a software update. And get a glimpse of the emojis to come, below.
