IOS 14.2 Beta 2 introduces new emoji for developers. Emoticons are part of Unicode Emoji 13.0.
The non-profit organization Unicode introduced 117 new emojis in January this year, which are part of Emoji 13.0. On most platforms, new emojis should be available this fall.
Usually, new emojis appear with each new version of the operating system of Apple devices. In addition, the company introduced custom designs for new emojis back in July. However, there were no new icons for developers in iOS 14 Beta 1.
IOS 14.2 Beta 2 released yesterday for developers revealed several new emoji from Unicode Emoji 13.0, including a smiling face with a tear and a face in a mask.
Apple also added gender-specific variations to the icons, with a woman in a tuxedo and a man in a veil. Also among the new emoji are bubble tea, transgender flag, feather, cockroach and fly.
In total, the new iOS, iPadOS and macOS will have 117 new emoticons. Emoji will be available to the general public with a stable release of new firmware by the end of this year.
