Get a Sneak Peek at the New Emojis Coming to Your Phone Next Week
Hundreds of new emojis will be debuting with the launch of iOS 11.1.
Soon there will be more ways to communicate with emoji when you’re at a loss for words or the only reaction to a text would be a silly character. iPhone users will have hundreds of new emojis to choose from when Apple’s latest update iOS 11.1 launches.
The new offerings include fashion finds (gloves, a trench coat, and a scarf), inspiring female options (a female rock climber, a woman with a headscarf, and a woman breastfeeding), and gender-neutral characters. There’s even a “Love-You” emoji designed to look like the “I Love You” gesture in American Sign Language.
Of course, there are new food icons joining the ever-popular avocado and taco: dumplings, broccoli, and a Chinese takeout container, so you can text your significant other or roommates and ask them to bring out the delivery menus for dinner. The fun doesn’t stop there with some “treat yourself” emoji, like a person who is wearing a towel and looks like they’re relaxing at the spa and a yoga one for every level of yogi. Plus, for Halloween, you’ll be able to get in the spooky spirit with a selection of mythical and mystical creatures, like a wizard, mermaid, and vampire.
While there is no set date for the next iOS 11 update—Apple tells us it will be released later this fall—the emojis will be available in the public and developer beta of the software. If you want to get them before anyone else, the public beta is open to anybody, all you have to do is sign up at this link.
