Ok, so there’s still not a potty training emoji, but in the next few weeks, you’ll be able to browse through 56 new emojis on your iPhone and we are SO excited.
Sadly there’s not the promised ginger emoji either, but there is a hedgehog, a mermaid and takeaway box and a head-exploding emoji (we’ve all been there), that will arrive with the iOS 11.1 software in a couple of weeks’ time. If you’re too excited to wait that long, there are ways to get first access, but we’ve hand-picked our favourites here:
Love-you gestureNot to be confused with the rock emoji, this means ‘I love you’ in American Sign Language.
FairyShe (or he) might not be tinkerbell, but is still a good one to have for those moments where you want to sprinkle some fairy dust on the mummy Whatsapp group.
Breastfeeding emojiWe reported on the breastfeeding emoji earlier this year but it will FINALLY be on our phones this October!
BroccoliAT LAST! If you’ve never noticed the lack of broccoli app, you cannot be too much of a fan of this leafy green!
SpaBecause we all need a secret ‘I need some me time’ emoji (or just to dwell on those days when you had time to visit a spa!)
Swearing face‘I must not swear in front of the children. I must not swear in front of the children.’
ZebraIncreasing the range of animal emojis, we’re not sure when you’d use this one, but love it all the same.
Head explodingThe one emoji that sums up the moment you toddler has drawn on the sofa in biro. Again.
