๐Ÿ’ฌ The Wrap๐Ÿ’ฌ The Wrap

While I'm afloat here on a boat โ›ต in the Adriatic Sea, others have been working hard today's release of Unicode 10.0. This is out now.

A few months back there was the โœ…๐Ÿ“ฃ announcement of the ๐Ÿ“ final emoji list for 2017. This is the next step โœ…๐Ÿ“‹.

Many of the new emojis announced in March need new code points ๐Ÿ“ 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 ๐Ÿ’•

Vampire, Vomit Face, Dumpling, Sandwich, T-Rex are among the new entries in the Unicode Standard, sure to please a lot of you out there.

The question I get asked the most about these updates is when they're coming to ๐Ÿ“ฒ 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 ๐Ÿ”œ๐Ÿ”ฅ)
