Sneak peek at Apple’s latest emoji release coming to iPhone and iPad

New emoji are coming! Hundreds of new designs are expected with iOS 11.1 including more emotive smily faces, gender-neutral characters, clothing options, food types, animals, mystical creatures and more!

And YESSSSS, there’s a dumpling one!!!!!!

The new update also includes the Love-You gesture designed after the “I love you” hand sign in American Sign Language.

The update will also include characters that were announced this past July including Person in Lotus position, Breastfeeding, Zombie, and new food items like the Coconut!

The new emoji will debut in next week’s developer and public beta previews of iOS 11.1 and will be available in upcoming software updates for iOS, macOS and watch OS.
