Apple CEO Tim Cook Announces New Emojis

Do you like emoji?

In celebration of World Emoji Day (which is apparently a thing), Apple has also done a playful makeover of iTunes Movies, as well as highlighting emoji-related apps ...

No matter, Apple's emoji library is about to get a lot more expansive.

While hardly a holiday familiar to everyone, Apple is marking the occasion with the reveal of a number of new emojis that are set to become available later this year with the launch of iOS 11 sometime in September.

Some of the new emojis include: A Woman with Headscarf and a Woman who is Breastfeeding as well as food items such as Sandwich and Coconut.

In total, Apple previewed 11 additional emoji, which are part of the Unicode Emoji 5.0 release.

There are also some new additions to the animal world with a dinosaur emoji and a not-so extinct zebra.

In the meantime, here is a close look at 12 new emoji designs that will be coming to all Apple devices over the next few months. The Exploding Head smiley is an instant favorite. World Emoji Day is now in its fourth year and the reason 17 July was chosen as the date is because it is the date that is shown on the Calender emoji.
