Apple shows off some of its new emoji on World Emoji Day


Apple has revealed a few of the emoji it’ll be releasing on iOS, watchOS and macOS later this year, a little gift just in time for World Emoji Day. The new expressive icons include a T-Rex and an Elf for Jurassic Park and LOTR fans tired of typing out the names of their heroes, as well as some new emoji that encourage more diverse communication, including a women a wearing a headscarf, and an emoji for breast-feeding.

The emoji are all part of the Unicode Emoji 5.0 standard release, which was finalized in March and released to the public in May. The total list includes 69 more emoji, and Apple is showing over a dozen of its interpretations of the new standardized icons today.
