Say hello to Apple’s new iOS 11 emoji

Finally, iOS 11 is here in all its glory, and in case the software’s new features weren’t exciting enough, Apple is also releasing hundreds of new emoji.

On Friday the company announced a trove of highly-anticipated emoji will be coming to iPhones and iPads, including more beloved food items, animals, smiley faces, and mythical creatures. Apple also announced it’s introducing gender-neutral characters in this update.

The new roster of emoji includes a giraffe and delicious looking pie, in addition to some clothing accessories and a smiley for when you’re just dying to swear. Here are just a few of the fun new emoji Apple revealed:

iOS 11.1 will also feature the emoji announced on World Emoji Day, which include Woman with Headscarf, Breastfeeding mom, Bearded guy, a Zombie, a Sandwich, a Coconut, a Zebra, a T-Rex, and much more.

And one that’s sure to make its way onto your “Frequently Used” page is the “Love-You Gesture,” presented as the American Sign Language “I love you” hand sign.
