With the introduction of iOS 15.4 today, Apple added a host of new emojis. Users now have access to a variety of new emojis, such as beans, melting faces, heart hands, disco ball, and X-Ray.
There are over 40 new emojis included in today’s iOS 15.4 updates, totaling over 120 additional possibilities when variants are considered.
According to Emojipedia, there are “ten non-standard handshake emoji pairs in which one of the hands lacks a skin tone modifier.“
Additionally, there are skin variants for the original handshake emoji. Additionally, the update includes a range of additional gestures and handshakes, including palm up, palm down, and an index finger point.
Seven new happy emoji are included in the update, including the melting face, which was featured on Late Night with Stephen Colbert and on the front page of the New York Times.
Additionally, Apple has introduced new gender-neutral emoji with a range of skin tones, a biting lip, and a troll.
Coral, an ID card, bubbles, hamsa, jar, and slide are just a few of the more unexpected items.
These new emoji are also available in iPadOS 15.4, tvOS 15.4, watchOS 8.5, and macOS 12.3.
