  • Here are the 70 new emoji coming to iOS

To go alongside the announcement, Apple unveiled emoji-fied headshots of its executives on its website.

Apple said they are coming "later this year in a free software update", and later noted they'll be in "a free update to iOS 12".

Now, for the first time, Apple has revealed what the emoji will look like on iPhones in honor of "World Emoji Day".

On New Year's Eve, both platforms say the highest amount of emojis shared.

The change also seems to be an early celebration for World Emoji Day, an unofficial holiday to celebrate the ubiqitous emoticons, which is on Tuesday. The company did the same thing last year, so it should be safe to assume that Apple will be unveiling new emoji every year every July 17. New animals include a parrot, lobster, peacock, and kangaroo.

World Emoji Day: Apple teases 70 new characters

For accessibility advocates, today's news will be tinged with disappointment as the range of disability-focussed emojis proposed in March 2018 were not included in the promo.

There are also new animal emojis that will join the current line-up.

In a statement, they said: "Let's see Twitter alive with more emojis than it has ever seen".

These new emoji were created with Unicode 11.0 guidelines in mind, and feature new options for people with curly hair or no hair at all.

Other characters being released include a new superhero emoji - male and female, a softball, nazar amulet and infinity symbol. These include ones such as Smiling Face with Smiling Eyes and Three Hearts, Partying Face, Pleading Face and Cold Face.
