The new designs were confirmed earlier this year by the Unicode Consortium, the body which maintains and regulates the library of characters.

New emoji are finally coming to iPhones, iPads, Macs, and Apple Watches this fall.

On World Emoji Day, Apple showcases its new emojis which will be launched in the fall season.

World Emoji Day is an unofficial holiday celebrated on July 17.

Lot of disability-themed emojis will come up on both Apple and Google operating systems.

The Cupertino-based company is adding several emoji such as a new smiley face for yawning, new food items, a one-piece swimsuit, as well as several cute critters.

Following Apple's proposal to the Unicode Consortium past year to introduce more disability-themed emoji, a new guide dog, an ear with a hearing aid, wheelchairs, a prosthetic arm and a prosthetic leg will be available in the emoji keyboard.

Apple has also previewed a number of new emoji, giving users a look at its own versions of these same emoji (a full gallery of the new emoji can be found on Apple's website here). This time, the emoji depicting the human relations will now let you select the skin tone for the two people. Individuals with these handsets can access the new emoji via the Android Q Beta now.

The emoji, destined to arrive as part of an update to iOS, iPadOS, macOS and watchOS later this year, brings a large update to the Holding Hands emoji typically used to represent couples and relationships.
