Finally, the moment you’ve all waited for: More than 70 new emoji are coming soon to iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and Mac.

And while that’s not even half of the 157 icons rolled out this summer as part of Unicode’s 11.0 update, there is more than enough new material to colorfully express your thoughts.

It is unclear right now which ones Apple passed up.

But iDevice owners everywhere will be delighted to see new characters with red, grey, or curly hair (as well as those without any hair); more emotive smiley faces; and additional representation of animals, sports, and food.

“Emoji are used by people all over the world to communicate,” Cupertino wrote in an update. “iOS 12.1 brings even more characters to the keyboard that better represent global users.”

Aside from justice for gingers, you’ll find hot and cold faces; superheroes and supervillains (of both sexes); a llama, hippopotamus, peacock, and parrot; a mango; a chess pawn, and a pirate flag.

The Unicode Consortium, meanwhile, put an emphasis on Asian culture, with pictures of mooncake, a Chinese baked good traditionally eaten during the Mid-Autumn Festival; a red envelope, which typically signifies a monetary gift given during the holidays or special occasions; and the Nazar eye-shaped amulet, believed to protect against the evil eye.

There is also a distinct nod to science and math, with images of a lab coat, microbe, test tube, petri dish, right-handed DNA, and an abacus.

The new emoji are available now in the developer and public beta previews of iOS 12.1, and will launch as part of upcoming software updates to iOS, macOS, and watchOS.

Unicode had already revealed 104 proposed candidates for a 2019 release; contenders include a yawning face, ballet shoes, a flamingo, an ice cube, a ringed planet, a kit, and a chair.

There are also a handful of accessibility symbols: prosthetic arm and leg, ear with hearing aid, guide dog, wheelchair (manual and motorized), and probing cane.

“Apple is working with the Unicode Consortium to add more disability-themed emoji to the keyboard for Unicode 12.0,” the company announced.

Apple recently released a new lineup of smartphones and its next-gen Apple Watch. Read The iPhone X Can’t Have My Memoji Face and keep up to date on the trillion-dollar company here.
