The Unicode Consortium, an organization that coordinates the development of Unicode and UTF characters, has announced that up to 74 new emojis have recently been accepted as candidates for Unicode 9.0. A platform that will be launched in mid 2016.
Therefore, the next Apple iPhone 7 will obviously include new emojis to its extensive list on iOS 10 . And there’s something for everyone! Read on to discover the emojis that Apple may soon be adding.
It is important to remember that Apple already added many emojis in iOS 8.3 and even implemented a system to change the skin tone to them. And among the new features of iOS 9.1, even more emojis were added: sunglasses, unicorns, a “middlefinger”, tacos, burritos…

Aren’t some of them great? Unfortunately Apple probably doesn’t include the 74 new emojis from the Unicode Consortium , so we probably won’t see some emojis like the one for the potato, the one for the egg, or the water polo player. But the most possible is that the emojis of the paella, the avocado, the salad, the man in a suit and the selfie emojis will make it to iOS 10.
Another curiosity about these new emojis for iPhone 7 is that many of them could replace some existing ones , such as the swimming emojis, some fruits, flowers and several animals.
But I’m suddenly struck by a doubt. There are currently two iPhone emojis in iOS and one from the Apple Watch. But will Apple add an iPad emoji in iOS 10? And another one for the Apple TV? One more question: Will we ever see animated emojis on mobile devices with iOS? Time will tell what Apple has in store for us. What emojis are you missing?
