Apple reveals new emojis coming with iOS 11.1

Apple logoApple released iOS 11 barely a month ago, but emoji lovers are eagerly awaiting its first major update. Apple revealed a bunch of new emoji that will come to iOS devices with the release of iOS 11.1. The new characters are adaptations from Unicode 10, which added 56 new emoji.

A quick look into Apple's new emojis shows a triad of new "genderless" emoji with various skin colors and age differences. The release also brings a group of new clothing emoji, which include a hat, scarf, gloves, and trench coat.

New food icons include broccoli, dim sum, pie, and a traditional "takeout" container. There's also a selection of new mythical characters, including a fairy, mermaid, vampire, and wizard, for those of us who would rather live in a fantasy world whenever possible. Apple will also include some emoji announced on World Emoji Day (July 17), like Woman with Headscarf, Bearded Person, and Breastfeeding.

Arguably one of the most useful new emoji is the American Sign Language hand sign for "I love you." It's a welcome addition to the emoji library, as many activists have petitioned for it for a while now (just don't confuse it with the "rock on" metalhead emoji that already exists).

Developer and public betas of the iOS 11.1 update will be pushed out next week, but there's no word on when the update will be officially released to the public.
