And in celebration of World Emoji Day, Apple has unveiled a sneak preview of the new emoji that we can expect to land on our devices later this year.

Tomorrow is World Emoji Day and here to celebrate are Google and Apple with previews of their own versions of the new emoji. These new emojis range from improved handholding couple emojis to other interesting new icons. Apple says it had proposed the new emojis to the Unicode Consortium last year and these were approved earlier this year.

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

An emoji without any specific gender assigned to it in the Unicode documentation will come with a "gender-ambiguous design", according to Google. Just like Google, Apple is also focusing on inclusion and diversity by offering 75 possible combinations of skin tone to personalize the Holding Hands emoji.
