Who is excited about the brand new emojis, I know I am. After the update of iOS 16.4, you might have noticed that we have got new emojis on our keyboard. Apple has added 31 new emojis to its latest software update, which was released on March 27, 2023. These new emojis are based on the Unicode 15.0 standard, which was approved in September 2022.

The new emojis include a variety of categories, such as smileys, animals, food, objects, symbols, and gestures. Some of the highlights are:

  • Shaking Face: This emoji can be used to express physical or emotional shaking, such as from fear, cold, excitement, or disbelief.
  • Pink Heart: This emoji has been one of the most requested by users for a long time, as it fills a gap in the heart emoji color spectrum. It can be used to express love, affection, or friendship.
  • Grey Heart: This emoji can be used to show neutrality or that you’re feeling underwhelmed.
  • Light Blue Heart: This heart represents calmness, trust, and loyalty. You can use it to convey your trust and loyalty to someone.
  • Donkey and Moose: These are two new additions to the animal emoji family, along with a Goose, a Wing, a Jellyfish, and a Hyacinth.
  • Pea Pod and Ginger: These are two new food emojis that can be used to represent healthy eating, cooking, or gardening.
  • Hair Pick and Folding Hand Fan: These are two new object emojis that can be used to represent personal grooming, style, or culture.
  • Flute and Maracas: These are two new musical instrument emojis that can be used to express musical talent, interest, or mood.
  • Khanda: This is a new symbol emoji that represents the Sikh faith. It consists of a double-edged sword with a chakkar (a circular symbol) and two kirpans (ceremonial daggers).
  • Wireless: This is a new emoji that represents wireless technology or connectivity. It can be used to indicate that something is wireless, such as headphones, speakers, or chargers.
  • Rightward Pushing Hand and Leftward Pushing Hand: These are two new gesture emojis that can be used to represent pushing or stopping something or someone. They can also be combined to create a high-five emoji.
  • The other emojis are different skin tone variations of the rightward and leftward pushing hand emojis. You can use these emojis to represent pushing something to the right or left with the specific skin tone you choose.
