Today, the Unicode Consortium has proposed a list of emojis for inclusion in Unicode 10 in the 2017 kit. Apple usually responds quickly
Altogether, Consortium offered 51 emojis. Following trends and popularity, the new emoji list includes a vampire, zombies, gin, a sandwich, broccoli, a “I love you” gesture, a flying saucer, a coconut, and many other signs. Full a list of proposed emoji characters can be found at this link.
Consortium also suggested modifying some of the existing emojis, including proposals to add a new emoji: an orange heart.
Unicode 10.0 will be released in mid-2017, so the final version of the new emojis will be agreed by now. It is very likely that Apple will add these new emojis in iOS with the release of iOS 11.1 or 11.2 a bit later this year. Recently, Apple added Unicode 9 support in the test build of iOS 10.2 beta, which includes such emojis as: selfie, facespalm, fox, bacon and many others.
