9to5 Mac reports that hundreds of new emoji are coming to iOS 11.1 beta 2 some time next week, “including more emotive smiley faces, gender-neutral characters, clothing options, food types, animals, mythical creatures and more.”
Aside from iOS 11.1, which should be available to all by the end of this month, the new emoji will also be available in watchOS 4.1 and macOS 10.13.1.
“The new emoji are designed to reveal every detail and adapted from approved characters in Unicode 10. iOS 11.1 will also include characters announced on World Emoji Day like Woman with Headscarf, Bearded Person, Breastfeeding, Zombie, Person in Lotus Position and new food items such as Sandwich and Coconut. Also included in the update is the Love-You Gesture, designed after the “I love you” hand sign in American Sign Language.”
Other new emoji include “Silly,” “Veggie,” “monacle,” “hedgehog,” “vampire,” “bad-mouth,” and “dimsum,” to name but a few of the many hundreds.
