๐Ÿ’ฌ The Wrap

Happy St. Patrick's Day to all those who celebrate it across the globe! โ˜˜๏ธ๐Ÿ’š

In case you missed it, earlier this week Apple officially released their latest batch of OS updates, including iOS 15.4.

Contained within these updates was support for Emoji 14.0 emojis like ๐Ÿซ  Melting Face, ๐Ÿซก Saluting Face, ๐Ÿซค Face with Diagonal Mouth, and a variety of new ๐Ÿค Handshake emojis (including 11 non-RGI options). A total of 123 new emojis were introduced.

One of Apple's new emoji designs confused some users, however: wasn't the new ๐Ÿซข Face with Open Eyes and Hand Over Mouth already in the emoji keyboard? Google emoji maestro and Chairperson of Unicode Emoji Subcommittee Jennifer Daniel outlines the source of this confusion in her latest blog post.

Apple aren't the only emoji vendor to debut their support for Emoji 14.0 since our last edition of the Emoji Wrap, however. Last week Twitter released Twemoji 14.0, also debuting the likes of ๐Ÿซ  Melting Face and ๐Ÿซก Saluting Face.

This update came swiftly after a minor Twemoji 13.1.1 update, revising a small number of emojis such as ๐Ÿ”‹ Battery, ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ช Flag: Belgium, and ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ Flag: India.

Speaking of revising a small number of emoji designs, Samsung released an update that revised the design of a single incredibly popular emoji: the โœจ Sparkles.
