The Unicode Consortium has accepted new emojis as canidates for Unicode 9.0. If they are included in iOS 10 iPhones will be getting some new emojis. You can see some of these new emojis in this TNW post. You can also see a full list of the canidates here. I grew up on Yahoo Messenger so I’ve always loved emojis. On my iPhone I use the keyboard shortcuts to make it easy to use emojis when I’m typing. There are so many that choosing manually has become a PITA.
These additional emojis are cool. I opened the first one on the complete list “Drooling Face” and I am down. I can’t wait until we get these. So let’s hope iOS 10 includes Unicode 9.
