Apple revealed roughly 30 of the 56 new emoji we'll be seeing in iOS 11.1.

All of these emoji will be part of the iOS 11.1 developer preview as well.

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.

There's the woman wearing a headscarf, a breastfeeding emoji and the gesture for "I Love You" in American sign language.

Those who don't identify as male or female, or would simply rather not specify gender, might be able to identify with a new emoji headed to iPhone. "They're the latest crop of Apple's hyper-realistic emojis, which were introduced in iOS 10 past year".
