Say hello to Apple's new emojis in iOS 9.1

Tech Industry
It's time to meet Apple's new emoji. I'm Bridget Carey, this is your CNET UPDATE. [MUSIC] The next operating system for iPhones and [INAUDIBLE] iPad's iOS 9. It comes out on Wednesday, September 16th. Apple is adding updates to Seri, the Maps app and new search tools. Newer iPads are going to get multi-tasking abilities. But some may argue that the most exciting [The] changes won't be arriving until the next update, Version 9.1, because that, my friends, is when Apple will release New emoji. In a developer beta of 9.1, we can see that Apple has created art for more than 50 new icons. The site Emojipedia.org highlights the new cast of characters including new sports icons, facial expressions, food, like the much longed for taco and burrito. And there's also animals, and new hand gestures, like the rock on sign of the horns. And yes, Apple also created a middle finger emoji. [SOUND] The crude expression is a bit controversial, but Microsoft and Google also created art, so you can send people the bird. A group called the Unicode consortium sets the standards of which symbols are in the universal Unicode keyboard language. But it's up to Apple and other companies to design how they want those icons to look, or even if they want to give people the option to use it. The middle finger was released in Unicode standards since summer of last year but It's only now that apple designed an image and added it to the keyboard. In the meantime you'll have toi find more creative ways to show your negative feelings in emoji because these icons are not expected to be added to the official iPhone and iPad keyboard software updates until sometime in November. Of course these days emoji are not limited to our keyboards. There are emoji apps that make it easy to copy and paste photos of other images into your text messages For example, the Star Wars app has Star Wars characters that you can copy and paste. And now, for the first time, the Pope even has his own emoji. Commissioned by the Catholic Network Alithea and created by the app maker Swift Media, the Popemoji app has 54 icons and 15 games with Pope Francis in American settings to support his visit to the US and reach millennial in new ways. We're living in some strange times, OMG. And if anyone is periscoping the Pope's visit to the U.S this month they can do so in landscape mode. Twitters live video streaming app has forced you always to keep vertical video but now it's finally added an update. You can also broadcast videos to the world horizontally. And now if you start a private broadcast you'll see a list of mutual followers and friends to make it faster to share a video. That's it for this [UNKNOWN] update, but you can keep up with all the latest at Cnet.com. From our studios in New York, I'm Bridget Carey. [MUSIC]
