They were only recently added to iOS because Apple’s designers had to make the icons using the data provided by the Unicode Consortium.

The three new colored heart emojis, one new smiling face, and two new hand gestures that should support the standard five skin tone modifiers are among the new emojis in the developer’s beta release of iOS 16.4, though they are not currently accessible in the beta.
