Apple gives us an advanced look at some of the new emoji coming during 2017
Monday was World Emoji Day, which was the perfect time for Apple to show off some of the new emoji it is adding this year. For iOS 11, Apple is including a breastfeeding woman, a bearded person, a woman wearing a scarf, a man practicing Yoga and more. After all, you never know when you might need an emoji of a sandwich to enhance your message about lunch. Other new emoji include coconuts, a T-Rex and a Zebra, a Zombie and an Elf. If smiley faces are your thing, new ones include an Exploding Head and a Star-Struck smiley.

The images are Apple's version of 69 new emoji approved by the Unicode Consortium. That is the non-profit organization that sets the standards globally for emoji and text. Since it is up to the software developers to create their own versions of these images, iOS and Android devices have different looking emoji.

You can expect to see the new emoji debut on iOS 11, which will start rolling out later this year, most likely when the 2017 iPhone models are released. That could be as soon as September. As for the latest Android emoji, they should be out later this year with the launch of Android "O." Google is revising all of the Android emoji this year after getting negative reviews for years about their "blob" shape.

You declared it a major feature all by yourself? No one's taking your decision and that useless criticism you posted.

Well it was a big deal when they presented it so yea, nobody has to take my decision, criticism is always appreciated.

It's not appreciated when you don't provide any reason for disliking it so harshly. And when you say it's a major feature; whoever said it even?

I read two articles telling about the emojis. Didn't want to go through all. So is there really an article where Apple says the emojis are a major feature of iOS 11. If so, then please link it below. Cause I want to end this thread here. Additionally, you said taunted Apple earlier by saying, 'is this what they bring as major feature to iOS 11? it's a joke man...'. That's what I object since you act like emojis are the only thing coming up with iOS.

No one (like me) wants to hear you criticize Samsung openly, as this starts the flame wars. Especially when everyone (like you) just pretends you own a Samsung and are selling it for an iPhone, only to disrespect the former brand. Grow up already! When are you gonna learn to create peace instead of trash talking about brands and lying that you own so and so phone. Even if that's not a lie, we still don't need to know how much you hate Samsung. Every brand is good in some way.
