Emoji exploded in popularity back in 2012 mostly thanks to iOS 6.
With the launch of new iPhone X and iPhone 8, Apple also introduced their new and improved version of smartphone OS i.e. iOS 11. No matter if it is Android or Windows or Linux or any other operating system, major software upgrades always bring new bugs and problems.
To fix these types of issues, software manufacturers release software patches. For example, Apple released iOS 11.0.1 and 11.0.2 so far as the patches to fix bugs in the original iOS 11. But what’s next?
iOS 11.1 is going to be the next major update for iPhone users that is packed with a lot of changes and bug fixes.
More emoji characters are coming to iOS in the future 11.1 update. The characters are part of Unicode 10, which added 56 new emoji.
Android Oreo already has some equivalent emojis but still, the vast majority of Android users aren’t yet running it so app developers are working on it to make new emojis available even for the older Android builds.
Anyway, let’s take a look:
The number of animals is growing with the addition of a giraffe, a zebra, a hedgehog, a Brachiosaurus, and an insect. Emoji are preparing you for the cold season with characters including gloves, a scarf, a trenchcoat, and a baseball cap.
The Chinese takeout box emoji joins the long-awaited dumpling emoji in Unicode 10, along with broccoli and a pie.
Also, there’s going to be a new orange heart emoji and some mythical emojis too.
Smiley faces get a whole lot more expressive in Unicode 10, running the gamut from foul-mouthed anger to calm pleas for silence. Fans of curling, rock climbing, and spas should be happy with these “wellness”-related additions.
