• The Unicode Consortium Releases a List of 38 New Emoji Candidates for Unicode 9.0



    A list of 38 new emojis have been released recently by The Unicode Consortium that made the list of candidates to be included in Unicode 9.0. Unicode 9.0 is noted to release sometime next year in 2016. Various characters made the cut and they include a ‘selfie’, ‘drooling face’, a ‘lying face’, among many others. The ‘seflie’ emoji is represented by a hand holding a camera. On the food side of things, an avocado, bacon, potato, cucumber, and croissant made the cut.

    The Unicode Consortium noted that there were many reasons why these emojis were chosen. Apparently due to multiple online community requests and expected high frequency uses, these emojis were the ones that made the list. The list of 38 new emojis have not yet been finalized, which means it could still be changed or even removed. There is also a possibility that even more characters will be added to the list before Unicode 9 gets released next year.

    Unicode 8 is currently in beta testing and is set to release sometime soon, in mid-2015. This set will be supported by OS X 10.10.3 and iOS 8.3.

      Stupid question, but is there any jailbreak tweaks that will add in the new official emojis from 8.3? Other than upgrading to the new iOS, of course.

      Well THAT was helpful.... Why bother answering if you're not going to help him?

      At OP - try Emoji83, you need to be jailbroken of course. It's available from the bigboss repo.

      Just go to Cydia and search for it.

      EDIT: removed a potentially dodgy repo - thanks google

      I answered his question. He didn't ask for a repo or tweak, he just asked if there was one

      Well whilst he was clearly asking was there one and granted you answered that yes there is, the "and what is it called?" is implied by the OP. I don't know if you thought you were being funny, or just plain obstructive, but it's customary on a forum when someone asks a sensible question to give a more comprehensive reply than a one word monosyllabic answer.

      Is that a dodgy repo? I've never used it, I merely google searched for emoji from 8.3 and that was the top hit. Ill edit the post if so!

      You apparently have no idea how a forum works.

      Hmm, I'm not seeing it. Is this the right BigBoss repo?
      apt.thebigboss.org/repofiles/cydia

      I thought it was SUBMITted to bigboss.
      Maybe I'm wrong-
      I download the tweak directly from github.

      This is the devs repo source.
