Apple is celebrating World Emoji Day on July 17 by revealing nearly 70 new emoji characters which will come to the iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and Mac later this year in a free software update.

You won't be able to get the new symbols on your iPhone yet - Apple typically releases new emojis as part of a software update in September.

Superhero emojis of both sexes, and animal emojis such as the kangaroo, peacock and lobster, will also be introduced in Apple's upcoming iOS 12 update later this year.

On 17 July, World Emoji Day, we're celebrating the emoji - and we want to know which is the one you like to use the most?

While you search, Google's advanced artificial intelligence "neural network" will try and guess what it's seeing - proof that machine learning can be used for more than just the serious and practical applications.

There are new people emoji as well, with red heads, curly hair and bald heads being added to the current mix.

This year Kim Kardashian West has made a decision to launch three new fruit themed fragrances in her KKW Fragrance line Kimoji on World Emoji Day.

The range also includes lettuce, cupcake and moon cake. "It's much more human to have emojis to send [texts] with".

There will be an infinity symbol, male and female superheroes, and a nazar amulet, which protects against the evil eye.

World Emoji Day falls on July 17.

Well, Apple has at last promised to rectify that situation with a whole new set of 70 emojis and even released a preview of what we can expect.

"We're looking for what is the most iconic, the most usable the most timeless representation of that emoji that we're designing", Apple's Vice President of User Interface Design Alan Dye, who oversees emoji design, told the Emojipedia blog.
