Here are all of the emoji, including the 72 new ones, available on iOS 10.2
As we mentioned the other day, the developer preview version of iOS 10.2 has been released. With this build comes the 72 new emoji that Unicode approved back in June. Among the new emoji are facepalm, bacon, and fist bump. The update to iOS 10.2 is expected to reach the general public later this month or early next month.

Among the new emoji you will find a clown. Back in June, when Unicode 9.0 was approved, you probably figured that a clown would be used in funny messages that passed along jokes. But clowns have since morphed into scary creatures. Other additions include the fingers crossed emoji, which you might add to an iMessage that reads "I hope that I don't see any clowns today."

With the 72 new additions, there are now 1,673 emoji officially recognized by Unicode. The new emoji, as noted, will appear on iOS 10.2. Android users will be able to see them only on Android 7.1, which means that only those with the new Google Pixel or Pixel XL currently have access to emoji like pancakes, a duck or a male disco dancer.
