• Unicode Consortium announces 72 new emoji's

    On Thursday, the Unicode Consortium announced that 72 new emoji character set will be released as part of Unicode 9.0 in June of 2016. The cucumber is set to be one of the favorites.

    Unicode Consortium released the samples shown below:

    The samples were rendered in Apple Style which is a mix of photorealistic and cartoon style images thanks to Emojipedia, the new emoji features "Mother Christmas" and "Man in Tuxedo." Among the more contemporary offerings is "Selfie," a hand holding an iPhone which, if you look closely, is displaying the new "Face Palm" character.

    Unicode 9.0 will include 19 symbols used in Japanese TV broadcasting, as well as modern scripts like Adlam, Osage, and Newa, and historic scripts including Bhaiksuki, Marchen, and Tangut. The9.0 specification is pending with an expected final publication date coming on June 21.

    Apple will incorporate Unicode's latest emoji library in public release. Last year Apple introduced Unicode 8.0 emoji support in the first iOS 9 point update in October.

      After using the animated Shaka on my apple watch for the past year I'm looking forward to the Shaka emoji most out of this new upcoming update.
