World Emoji Day: Apple shows off 59 new emojis launching this fall
18 July, 2019, 11:53
The company said in a press release: "Following Apple's proposal to the Unicode Consortium a year ago to introduce more disability-themed emoji, a new guide dog, an ear with a hearing aid, wheelchairs, a prosthetic arm and a prosthetic leg will be available in the emoji keyboard".
In the latest update to the emojis, the holding hand emoji that is primarily used to represent couples in a relationship will now allow users to select different combinations of skin tone and gender.
Apple also unveiled its "takes" on the emoji, and it's gone for its usual blobby cartoon-style approach, although all its renderings are noticeably more 3D than the 2D images Unicode typically goes for.
Today, July 17, is World Emoji Day and the automaker is marking the occasion by revealing the first-ever pickup truck emoji. Google says it's also included 53 gender-inclusive designs for emojis where Unicode hasn't specified a gender. The Cupertino-based company is adding several emoji such as a new smiley face for yawning, new food items, a one-piece swimsuit, as well as several cute critters. "Given the popularity of Ford trucks globally, there's no one better than Ford to help bring an all-new pickup truck emoji to hard-working texters around the globe".
"For example, the emoji for "police officer" is commonly displayed as male and the "person getting haircut" is female". A total of 59 new emoji designs will be introduced by Apple in a free iOS update this fall.
Apple and Google are both expected to launch their own interpretations of this year's characters later this year for iOS 13 and Android Q, respectively. Of course, sending these new emojis will be limited to Android Q devices.
