Apple previews upcoming emoji for World Emoji Day

You might have noticed yesterday was world emoji day and what better way for Apple to celebrate than through a whole range of new emojis for iOS? And if you're an emoji traditionalist who sticks only to smileys, there are options for you too: This update will include exploding head and star-struck smiley faces.

There are also some new additions to the animal world with a dinosaur emoji and a not-so extinct zebra.

Emojis have gained vast popularity during online conversations, so much so companies have started adding new ones based on something that is trending across the globe, be it a fashion statement or a social message, and Apple has added a few to its fold this World Emoji Day - whatever that may be.

Apple didn't indicate when iOS and Mac users might be able to deploy the new emojis, but iOS 11 is due out in September.

About 5 billion emojis are sent each day on Facebook Messenger, the social media giant said Monday, World Emoji Day.

New food items include Sandwich, Steak and Coconut.
