๐Ÿ’ฌ The Wrap

What strange times we are in. Windows, previously the ugly step-child of emoji design, came out with a beautiful new emoji design this month, Android has added support for this year's new emojis before iOS, and emoji news hit headlines globally with Apple changing the gun emoji to a water pistol.

September will bring iOS 10 with new emoji designs, and a first-pass at new gendered emojis. Oddly, Unicode 9 emoji support is missing from iOS 10.0 betas, which leads me to believe Apple will have a second large emoji update with iOS 10.1 in October.

Samsung has new emojis coming too - but I don't yet have a release date for these yet. Never a dull moment.
