Wizards, Pies, hedgehogs and new genderless characters will all be arriving on your iPhone and iPad soon thanks to an upcoming update to iOS11.
Emoji have been a very bizarre –if not somewhat predictable — evolution in how we communicate, but the standard is always evolving. Though Unicode showed off the 2017 list back in March, today we have our first look at the designs that Apple will be putting onto iOS, macOS, and watchOS in future updates.
This is just a partial look, we’ll be able to see the “hundreds of new emoji” when Apple seeds a beta of iOS 11.1 to developers and public beta users next week. These include new options like “Woman with Headscarf,” “Bearded Person,” and “Sandwich.”
You can take a look at some of the new emoji below, including what could likely be the cutest emoji ever and the most deeply unsettling.
