The hand fan and hair pick emoticons add a new cultural dimension, while the grey, light blue, and pink hearts provide a more nuanced means of expressing emotions. The pea pod and ginger have been added to the list of food-related emoticons. The Wi-Fi symbol is handy when discussing digital communications.

The leftwards and rightwards pushing hand emoticons, which come in six different colors, are a notable feature that promotes diversity and inclusivity in communication. The trembling face emoji provides a new way for users to express their emotions.

Again, these emoji have already been released with iOS 16.4 in some territories. Only some iOS users will get them with iOS 16.5.
