Apple previewed over 70 new emojis that will be introduced to iPhones and iPads later this year through the upcoming iOS 12 update, as part of the celebrations for World Emoji Day.

The new emojis are meant to better represent the vast demographic of users, including all different hair types and skin tones, as well as more expressive faces. There's also a "pleading face" with big eyes and a blushing smiley face surrounded by three hearts. There are new curly hair, red hair, gray hair and no-hair options for popular emojis.

Australia features prominently in the animal update with a kangaroo, parrot and lobster now available.

Apple is celebrating by unveiling some new emojis that will be launched later this year.

In the food department, you can expect to see emojis for mango, lettuce, cupcakes and mooncakes, among plenty others. The company said in a statement, "There is more than 2,800 emojis and nearly all of them (2,300) are used each and every day on Facebook".

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. "Honestly, there's nothing better than when someone who might have seemed a bit aloof via email sends an emoji and you can breathe out, knowing we're all just humans after all". One is that we didn't make that up; World Emoji Day is really a thing.
