The company said it revealed some of the new emoji to help celebrate World Emoji Day. Several fun new characters are on the way, including a genie, a tyrannosaurus rex, zombies, a woman breastfeeding, an elf and more.
The new emoji are technically a set of emoji that are launching as part of Unicode 10.0, the standard set for emoticons. While Apple didn’t show them, there will also be emoji for bitcoin, man in a steam room, various additional dinosaurs, sleds and more. You can see the full list — though not necessarily Apple’s interpretation of them — on the Unicode website.
Apple didn’t say when the new emoji will be available on its devices but expect them sometime around the launch of iOS 11 in September.
