That is, the emojis most required by users and that in the future can be adopted by different platforms and operating systems. At the moment they are candidates and some of them do not even have a previous representation, but we can already get an idea.
Next June 5th, the 2018 emojis will be officially launched, including more than 150 new emojis. However, before this launch, the Emojipedia has published the candidates for next year. A flamenco, the white heart, diving glasses or an axe are some of the most required and popular.
The list of candidates is very long but also very flexible. It may change over the next few months and we may see variations in it. In any case, Apple will probably publish which of them will be included in its operating systems and which design it will use for them during the emoji day. For the moment, we will have to wait one more year to use the emoji of the stethoscope, the banjo or the axe.
For those of us who won’t have to wait that long, it’s for this year’s emojis, which were presented last year and will finally arrive officially on 5 June. From now on, it is a matter of different companies implementing them, Apple will do it with iOS 12 . What are these emojis? More than 150 new ones that we saw at the time:
The frozen face, the redheads, the peacock, the kangaroo, the lobster, the toilet paper, the pirate flag… All of them will arrive in the next iOS versions natively thanks to the integrated Apple keyboard. Therefore, regardless of whether WhatsApp, Twitter or other platforms and apps adopt them, if you have iOS 12 you will be able to use them. Apple has always been concerned about the implementation of emojis, in fact, during Emoji Day it even promotes them on its official website or by changing the titles of some movies in iTunes.
“Let them stop their nonsense and emojis and focus on making a stable and error-free iOS, what do I care if there are white, brown or black people when the yellow face is neutral” This is a typical argument that arises every time Apple or Emojipedia publishes news about emojis. However, we must take into account that emojis are an almost universal language and used much more than we think. Offering a coherent standard where integration and non-discrimination is full is something basic, even though many people may not like it and try to correlate it with other problems and factors.
