Apple launches new emojis – one gets a lot of attention in particular

Apple launches 37 new emojis in its upcoming iOS 15.4 update. So far, there is only one beta version of iOS, but they have already revealed their new emojis on their own blog.

Among other things, you will find a melting face, a dotted line face, an index finger, heart hands, inter-ethnic handshakes, a tear-soaked emoji and a pregnant man.

The emoji of a pregnant man was recommended as part of Unicode 14.0 September 2021. Unicode is to be regarded as the “central bank” for all emojis on all platforms.

Unicode then explained that the pregnant man emoji can be used as a sign that you are stuffed – and writes that there is no right or wrong way to use an emoji.

The emoji is referred to as a “pregnant person”, and even then received massive publicity. However, it has taken a few months for Apple to create its own expression on the emoji.

Since 2019, many users have argued for gender-neutral variants of the well-known icons.

The different skin tones should also help to promote tolerance.

IOS 15.4 is expected to arrive in March or April 2022, and changes may be made. Usually, however, the emojis approved in the beta version are included in the launch of the new iOS.

Not since 2017 have several new emojis been presented.
