Emoji 14.0 draft renderings by Jeremy Burge
The draft candidates for the Unicode Consortium’s Emoji 14.0 release are up for approval and Emojipedia has shared a great look at many of the new emoji that could come to iPhone over the next year. Seven new faces are in the mix like melting face and face with peeking eye, with other candidates including heart hands, person with crown, troll, low battery, x-ray, biting lip, and many more.
With Unicode 14.0 still being in draft status and not officially voted on yet, we don’t know exactly how they all might look or if they will all be approved. However, emoji expert and Emojipedia founder Jeremy Burge drew up detailed renderings (via MacStories) of what we might see when they land on iPhone and other devices starting later this year.
New emoji faces on the draft list include melting face, face with open eyes and hand over mouth, face with peeking eye, saluting face, dotted line face, face holding back tears, and face with diagonal mouth.
Other new emoji up for consideration include person with crown, heart hands, 25 handshake variants including heart hands, beans, pregnant person, troll, lotus, empty nest, beans, wheel, low battery, pouring liquid, x-ray, and more. There are over 100 new emoji on the draft lift when including skin tone variants.
Since Emoji 14.0 is still in draft status, Jeremy notes that “each emoji is subject to change prior to final approval in September 2021.” But also highlights that in past years, “the majority of draft emoji candidates end up included on the final list.”
The Unicode Consortium is slated to vote on the 14.0 list in September. Apple is usually quick to bring newly approved emoji to iOS. This fall we could see these new additions come to iPhone with an iOS 15.1 update or similar.
