The new emojis will also be coming to (or may have already arrived on) other platforms as well, as they're part of the official Emoji 11.0 release.

In celebration of World Emoji Day, Apple just announced that over 70 new emojis will be coming to iOS and Mac devices.

A centerpiece of the emoji additions this year will be improved diversity in hair options, including red hair, gray hair, curly hair, and bald. These hair updates come in the full range of skin tones as well. On top of that, there are also new smiley faces with a party face, a cold face, and - our personal favourite - a pleading face. Animal emoji include lobsters, and a surprisingly detailed peacock.

Foodies can now illustrate their messages with a mango, lettuce, cupcake or mooncake.

There are a handful of miscellaneous emoji in among the rest. There are some more obtuse new designs too, notably a nazar symbol (to guard against the evil eye) and an infinity symbol.
