iOS 10.2 beta brings many new emoji
Big news for fans of using images instead of big words: iOS 10.2, now in its first developer beta, brings scores of new emoji to the emoji picker.
As Jeremy Burge of Emojipedia reports:
iOS 10.2 developer beta adds full Unicode 9 emoji support which includes all of the following 72 emojis approved in June 2016.
It may seem silly, but getting access to the latest emoji can be a huge driver of prompt OS updates, and sending a friend an emoji they can’t read can serve as viral marketing for those updates.
