MORE THAN 70 new emoji characters have been revealed by Apple.

The new emoji designs include even more hair options to represent people with red hair, grey hair and curly hair, a new emoji for bald people, and new smiley faces that bring more expression to messages with a cold face, party face, pleading face and a face with hearts.

Joining the growing list of animals represented on the emoji keyboard are characters for the kangaroo, peacock, parrot and lobster, with the addition of new food emoji for mango, lettuce, cupcake, moon cake and other popular items.

A spokeswoman for Apple said: “Many additional characters across sports, symbols and more, will launch later this year, including a new superhero emoji, a softball, nazar amulet and infinity symbol.
“Thousands of emoji are currently available on iOS, watchOS and macOS, including smiley faces, gender-neutral characters, various clothing options, food types, animals, mythical creatures and more.”
