130+ New Emoji (Some Reversible) Proposed for iOS 12

130+ New Emoji Proposed for iOS 12

Unicode has just released the beta version of Unicode Emoji 11.0, set to be publicly released in 2018. "However, that can cause a definite change in meaning when exchanging text across platforms".

The update will also introduce emojis for people with ginger hair as well as cupcake, bagel, kangaroo and softball icons. It's important to note the list of candidates is not a final list and is subject to change before approval. Since the beginning of this year, there's been a lot of buzz around what kind of new emoji Unicode 11.0 would bring. A new section now outlines a ZWJ mechanism which will let the vendor switch directions of any emoji.

Unicode, the consortium responsible for choosing the new emoji across all platforms, announced the beta version of the 2018 emojis on Monday.

If vendors show support for these sequences, we might finally be able to have the train face left-right, or the runner, or the gun. Presumably, this would allow users to customize their emoji's direction before sending them.

Developers can now access Emoji 11.0 data files from Unicode for testing and to provide feedback.
