Emoji turned Internet joke hits iPhone; see new faces | Internet

Unicode, the body responsible for the standardization of emoji, announced last Thursday (10), the list of 59 faces that will reach the iPhone (iOS). New features include new accessibility icons, more gender and skin tone variations, as well as animals such as otters and laziness. A new way of choosing couples will also be launched, in which it will be possible to choose each member of the pair separately. The symbols will be added to iOS 13.2, which is expected to launch between October and November this year.

One of the news is the "Pinching Hand", or "Pinching Mo", which became a joke on the web when being released on other platforms in March this year. The emoji gained sexual connotation and became synonymous with something "mixuruca". Another human expression that comes to iOS in this update is the face yawning.

The accessibility emojis gained reinforcement with human figures in a manual and mechanized wheelchair, others talking about "deaf signal", equivalent to Libras in Brazil, as well as people with white skin (visually impaired person).

From the upgrade, it will be possible to combine couples manually with a new selection interface. The user must press the desired couple to open a submenu of possibilities. Then you should choose the first and then the second person of the pair, making it easy to choose the desired skin tone.

Gender neutral will also be expanded and most human emojis will be added, appearing alongside male and female in employment and fantasy situations, for example.
