Shortly after releasing iOS 12, Apple released iOS 12.1 as a beta for developers and beta program users. The second update of iOS 12.1 is expected today, but before the update reached participants' devices, Apple detailed one important change: More than 70 new emoji will be included in the update.
The new emoji include characters with red, gray, curly hair, or no hair at all. There are also new emoji for animals, sports, and food. Here are a few of the new ones expected:
The iPhone and iPad aren't the only devices that will gain the new emoji, with upcoming updates for the Apple Watch and Mac also adding the new characters to the respective platforms.
If you can't wait to try out the new emoji, you can join Apple's Public Beta Program. Just be forewarned: Betas aren't finalized and often have bugs and issues. Install the beta only if you're willing to troubleshoot or live with issues.
Apple and Samsung recently released large flagship smartphones priced at $1,000+. They are close to the same size and have the latest specs, but there are also some significant differences that will lead you to one over the other for your business needs.
Once again, David Gewirtz puts on his mystical prognostication hat (okay, fine, he launches Excel) to delve into Apple announcement history. Will we see new Macs, iPads, and whatnot in October? There's a pretty good chance, and we'll even tell you what dates to write in your calendar.
