New emoji July 2017_1500314075743-159532.jpg26853663

Apple announced a collection of new emoji characters coming to iOS, macOS and watchOS later this year. The news coincides with World Emoji Day on July 17, 2017.

What do a genie, an elf, and a zombie have in common?  Yes, they’re all make believe, but they’re also three of more than a dozen new emoji characters Apple plans to release later this year.

The company announced the collection on Monday, which was World Emoji Day.  The new additions feature more inclusive roles for women, such as one wearing a headscarf and another breast feeding.  

Another new offering, a ‘mind blown’ emoji.

And, if emoji’s are your thing, you should schedule a date at the theater for July 28th, which is when ‘The Emoji Movie’ debuts!  The plot follows Gene, an emoji with multiple emotions who just wants to be like all of the other emoji’s in Textopolis that just have one.  He enlists the help of a couple of friends on his quest and encounters danger and adventure along the way.
