Apple Just Released Over 100 New Emojis
The new pictographics are available on Apple's new iOS 14.2 update, which brings a number of new features, improvements and changes to those who use iPhones, iPads or any other Apple products.
Several new emojis have been updated in new sequences to add gender-specific options for men or women. For example, the generic 'woman in wedding veil' and 'man in tuxedo' options can now be applied to male or female emoji characters.
Apple has also released the gender-neutral 'Mx. Claus' emoji, with six skin colours to choose from just in time for Christmas.
One new emoji you're likely to see plenty of in the next coming weeks is the new "pinched finger" emoji, which the internet has previously memed to become the "frustrated Italian hand gesture" - so prepare to see it when people are feeling peeved.

Other emojis we like the look of include the adorable seal emoji, the polar bear face and the beaver emoji - all which are too cute for words (quite literally).
And of course, it wouldn't be an accurate Apple update without a nod to the dreaded coronavirus which has loomed large over the entire year. A more anatomically correct pair of lungs and heart are now available to choose on the emoji keyboard. The mask-wearing emoji, which has become synonymous with 2020, has also faced an update, which includes "happier" looking eyes as opposed to the previous "sad eyes" it was best known for.
The full list of new emojis can be found at Emojipedia.
The new updates also adds several big features for those that use Apple's HomePod products, just before the new HomePod mini is released.
The new emojis come after it was rumoured the new iPhone 12 Pro allows you to measure someone's height instantly using its scanner function.
