Now, for the first time, Apple has revealed what the emoji will look like on iPhones in honour of “World Emoji Day.”
Apple didn’t reveal every single new character — there have to be some surprises, after all — but it did give us a look at a few of them, including a lobster, cupcake, redheads, and more.You won’t be able to get the new symbols on your iPhone just yet, however – Apple typically releases new emoji as part of a software update sometime in September.
But for now, here’s an early look at some of the new emoji confirmed to be arriving later this year.
