The update will bring more than 100 new and refined symbols, among them being at least three gender-neutral emoji. We’ve seen that the update will include more diverse icons than we’ve previously seen, such as a woman with a headscarf and a woman breast feeding, and this representation is incredibly important as it sees Apple celebrating many different identities. Now we’re also getting a peek at a mermaid, fairy, wizard and vampire emoji, as well as some dumplings, broccoli and new animals. Needless to say, we’re going to be flipping through them all once the update arrives.
