Apple's iOS 10.2 update: here are all the new emoji

After a long period of beta testing it, Apple has now released iOS 10.2, the latest version of its mobile operating system.

We already have the big story about all the changes that come with iOS 10.2, but in this article we wanted to focus on what's probably the most fun of them all: emojis.

Apple brings a slew of new emojis in iOS 10.2 with support for Unicode, and apart from the peach emoji retaining its filled with sexual innuendo form, there are a few interesting and a few creepy new ones that you might want to know about.

Things like the extremely creepy long-nose lying face emoji are now official, and you also now have harambe, all sorts of emojis for sports and a very weird drooling emoji. Check them all out right below.

I know this is a joke for an update and all but, any ideas when Android will be getting new emojis?

These updates are mainly to patch tiny descrpensies in software that are found by any software developer either android, iOS, windows, etc. they exist in every program, operating system, and app. A little tweak in animation or UI button placement can mean the world of difference. So there's no joke about it. They couple features with these updates either because they're ready before the big is launch or because they need some party of infrastructure out early before the big reveal of a certain feature. Emojis are useless to me, but to many it's just icing on the cake.

That would be the case, yes, if this was say, 10.1.3, or something of the sort. 10.2 means major update, and I don't see anything major here. I'm not saying Apple is the only one guilty of this, I've used both OS, but still. But you didn't answer my question lol Any idea when the emojis come for Android?
