Apple has presented the final look at the array of new emojis it will introduce in iOS 12.1, giving users a good idea of all the disease and lobster-based content they will be able to create.
Jeremy Burge, the guy who has the very real job of helming Emojipedia, shared the final designs on Twitter early this morning. Behold, friends: bald emojis, redheaded emojis, superheroic emojis, a hot emoji, a cold emoji, and an absolutely buckled emoji:
The emojis, which conform to the new Unicode standard first presented earlier this year, provide users with a new range of narrative possibilities.
Hypothetically, one could demonstrate they contracted a deadly virus from a llama. Users could represent their kale-eating, skateboarding lifestyle. You could declare yourself a pirate with a foot fetish.
Oh, there’s a kangaroo, too. Good gear.
Currently, those emojis are only available to those in Apple’s developer and public beta programmes, but they are expected to roll out real more broadly real soon.
Further down the pipeline, users can expect to see more emojis demonstrating people with disabilities; those tiny pictures are slated to appear some time in 2019.
