Regarding the new emoji icons that were being previewed, Apple said in a blog post:

With thousands of emoji available on iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and Mac, there are many ways to add personality to every message. New emoji include Woman with Headscarf, Bearded Person and Breastfeeding, and food items such as Sandwich and Coconut. More animals and mythical creatures like T-Rex, Zebra, Zombie and Elf are a fun way to describe situations and new Star-Struck and Exploding Head smiley faces make any message more fun.

Additionally, the iOS App Store will be showcasing apps that are related to emoji and the iTunes Store will be replacing some movie titles with emoji – a fun way to celebrate World Emoji Day!

As someone who uses emoji with a decent frequency, I have to say that this upcoming batch of emoji icons are pretty neat, with many of the icons having a great deal of detail to them. As far as initial favorites go, the “mind blown” and “zombie” emoji are probably at the top of the list for me.

New or old, what’s your favorite emoji? Feel free to leave your thoughts and opinions below!
