Have you downloaded iOS 16.4 yet? If so, you might've noticed that Apple's software update brings a collection of new features to your iPhone, from voice isolation for calls to support for PlayStation 5 controllers. The update also brings a batch of 31 new emoji.
Among the new emoji are a shaking-head smiley; animals like a donkey, moose and goose; and additional heart colors, such as plain pink and light blue. The plain pink heart has been a long-sought emoji, according to Emojipedia, which named it one of the site's top emoji requests in 2015. Last year's significant emoji drop in iOS 15.4 included a melting face, a lip being bitten and a pregnant man, with 37 new designs in total.
Emojipedia said the new emoji came from Unicode's September 2022 recommendation list, Emoji 15.0.
