Unicode Rolls Out New Emoji: What Made the Cut

You’ve been waiting your whole emoji life for the avocado. And now it’s coming.
In addition to the ever-popular fruit (yes, an avocado is a fruit; we googled it), they’ve released a fox face, an owl, drooling face, a pregnant woman, a selfie, a “call me” hand, handshake, shark, croissant and more.

There will also be male and female firefighters, painters, technologists and judges with all skin tones.

Lastly, it appears that the even the most established emojis will get a bit of a sharp upgrade in detail, which we obviously welcome. Anything that makes our communication more clear–whether in words or with pictures–is a win for the digital world.

Release has been announced for iOS 10.2 and likely to hit phones this month.
