How’s your emoji game? Well, if you want to step it up, now’s the perfect opportunity. Just as we were starting to get used to the 117 emoji Unicode added last year, the text system just added 400 new emojis to keyboards. The emojis were released in conjunction with Apple’s iOS 14.5 update and they’re perfect for upping your emoji game.
The new emojis include a heart on fire, a face with spiral eyes, a wounded heart, a vaccine-friendly syringe, a face in the clouds, a face exhaling, and a new pair of headphones among many other fun ones. In the hopes of being more inclusive, they also introduced a woman with a beard and a person with beard emoji.
Many of the new icons are variations of the kiss and couple with heart emojis, which now feature multiple gender and skin tone combinations, so there’s something for every couple.
Emojis aren’t the only major updates from Apple. The iOS 14.5 update brings other new features including the ability to unlock iPhone with Apple Watch while wearing a mask, more diverse Siri voices, and new privacy controls.
It’s free so go ahead and update your iPhone!
