With the arrival of iOS 9.1, Apple added a host of new emoticons to its existing iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch operating system. These famous emojis – perfectly known by all – are small icons that allow us to express emotions in a friendly and direct way to the person we are talking to through our device. It has been some time since we first saw them on a device until they were standardized in 2010. Since then, these colorful and expressive icons have not stopped multiplying .
There are more than a thousand emojis that we have in our terminals, yet there are expressions that we find difficult to express through the emoticons available. The Unicode Technical Committee has accepted 74 new characters to join the various categories found on our keyboard. The selfie, the cross of fingers, the scooter, the facepalm , until the -already claimed in its day- paella, are some of the new additions that we can find.
All these icons will be part of Unicode version 9 and are expected to be available by mid-year. For this reason, it would not be surprising if we had to wait until the arrival of iOS 10 to enjoy and share these new icons . What is clear is that they will arrive with a software update, which will be, we will be waiting.
