Apple has already begun to test iOS 14.2 after launching iOS 14.0.1 only recently. Not only that, but the company even released an early beta version of the update yesterday.
New emojis were spotted in the early beta version of iOS 14.2, the preview of which Apple had shared in July. All the new emojis are more diverse and inclusive than before and also include new variations of the existing emojis.
Unicode Consortium is the body in charge of approving new emojis, and it approved about 117 new emojis as part of Unicode 13.0, after which, companies including Apple, Microsoft, Google, Facebook, Twitter, and Mozilla created their own versions of the emojis to launch them on their platforms.
Apple has taken inclusiveness to the next level with the new emojis as you will now spot a male emoji with a veil on and a female emoji dressed in tuxedo. Other unique emojis include a unisex version of Santa Claus, a transgender flag, a disguised face, etc.
All the emojis are expected to roll out in a month or so. They will be available for iOS 14.2, iPadOS 14.2 and macOS Big Sur.
