We all love a good emoji – one image to represent a phrase, food or feeling. We use them more and more often but there is always one that we’re missing. Well, fear not because the bagel emoji is here!
Tell your children, tell your wives! When we thought we reached the pinnacle of the emoji experience with the avocado emoji (or at least we did) now Apple is releasing more than 70 new emoji – right with the release of iOS 12.1.
It has been rumoured some of the additions may include a bagel emoji, a llama one, grey-haired emojis and redheads (a long awaited set of emojis!) All emojis, before being approved, will need to pass the tests in order to be approved by the Unicode Consortium: Unicode establishes standards for emoji to be used across device types and operating systems, such as iOs, Android and more.
A few of the new emojis for the current collections were previewed back in July on World Emoji Day, (TechCrunch) including options for bald people, curly-haired people, and moustache.
Apple says it’s also working with Unicode to “add more disability-themed emoji to the keyboard for Unicode 12.0, slated for release in 2019” (Verge)
What emojis would you be looking forward to the most? Is avo on toast in the cards?
