💬 The Wrap
A few months back there was the ✅📣 announcement of the 📍 final emoji list for 2017. This is the next step ✅📋.
Many of the new emojis announced in March need new code points 📝 from Unicode, which this release provides. This means Apple, Google, Microsoft or Samsung are now free to bring these to our phones. If they love us, they'll do it soon 💕
The question I get asked the most about these updates is when they're coming to 📲 iOS or WhatsApp. Apple didn't mention new emojis at WWDC this month; nor are they in the current developer previews of iOS.
Most likely iOS release: October or November in iOS 11.0 or 11.1. Stay tuned for updates on this! Vendor support will take place over the next 6-8 months which is the last step in the process.
(The question I'm next asked is usually about redheads, and they are candidates for 2018 🔜🔥)
As always, thank you to anyone who subscribed and is getting their first email! 💌
Housekeeping note: these emails come out once per month, but I have slightly changed when in the month they are sent 📌🗓
🌯 Emoji Wrap is usually send in the second half of a month, but sometimes I will send this early if there's a major 📣 announcement or 📰 news to share.
