Many new emojis have been added with the release of iOS 15.4 today. A variety of new emojis is now available to users, including beans, melting faces, heart hands, disco balls, and more.
The iOS 15.4 update released today adds more than 40 new emojis, giving users a total of over 120 new possibilities.
There are “10 non-standard Handshake emoji pairs where one of the hands does not have a skin tone modifier,” according to Emojipedia. The original handshake emoji has been expanded with additional skin tone variants. The latest update also adds several additional handshakes and gestures, including palm up, palm down, and an index finger point.
Seven new happy emojis, including the melting face, which appeared on Late Night with Stephen Colbert on the front page of the New York Times, are included in the update. Along with new gender-neutral emojis, Apple has also included troll, biting lip, and a range of skin tones.
The addition of coral, an ID card, bubbles, a hamsa, a jar, a slide, and other items is among the more haphazard ones.
These new emojis are also included in iPadOS 15.4, tvOS 15.4, watchOS 8.5, and macOS 12.3, in addition to iOS 15.4.

Here’s what’s in store in the emoji world
What type of emojis are introduced?
Apple incorporated many hand gestures that have become popular in the modern world in addition to face emojis. These will make talks more interesting and less boring, from BTS’ well-known crossed-finger heart sign to an emoji with the index finger pointing at the viewer like in the legendary Uncle Sam’s poster. If you’ve run out of options for red, blue, or purple hearts, this emoji of two hands forming a heart is available. Right and left hands with the palms pointing down are another pair of hand gestures.
Many additional facial emojis are also included in the new additions. Emojipedia reports that there are seven new smiling emojis in the Apple iOS 15.4 beta. A melting face emoji has been released in anticipation of the coming summer, and it will undoubtedly be widely used in the months to come.
When any terrifying message appears, the “Face with Peeking Eye” is there to assist. When things are probably not going your way, you may express your emotions by using the emoji “Face Holding Back Tears.” The idiom “Face with Wide Eyes and Hand over Mouth” is more ominous or startling.
The iOS 15.4 update also gives a nseveralings their emoji versions. This collection includes things like a low battery indication, ring buoy, slide, and even an illustration of a troll. The emoji roster is fairly diverse, including a person wearing a crown, a pregnant woman, someone pouring liquid, and more.
Inclusivity in mind
The current handshake emoji has had a skin tone variant added as part of the recent updates to reflect diversity. The main benefit is that one may select different skin tones for either hand. Skin tone variants are available for all the new additional movements.
Unicode Consortium approval
On January 27, 2022, Emojipedia released the first image of the new emojis that will be included in iOS 15.4. In September 2021, the Unicode Consortium accepted the 37 additional additions. All emojis must be approved and standardized by this organization.
These new emojis have already been made available to developers as part of the iOS 15.4 beta, but Emojipedia predicts that they will be made available to the general public in March or April.
Origin of emojis
Formerly known as “emoticons,” emojis were created by Shigetaka Kurita, a Japanese artist. From their initial appearance on the internet in 1999, they have grown to play a significant role in our digital lives.
