To celebrate World Emoji Day (which is today if you didn’t know), Apple has announced its next round of brand new emoji. There will be more than 70 emoji in total coming to iOS 12 later this year, including emoji to represent redheads, people with grey hair, and no hair — all available in a variety of skin tones.

Alongside the human-focused emoji, Apple plans to drop new animals and food emoji including a parrot, a peacock, a lobster, a kangaroo, a moon cake, a mango, a cupcake, and a head of lettuce. A new superhero emoji is also on the way, which arrives with a softball, nazar amulet, and infinity symbol.

Apple’s traditional smiley faces will get an update, with new “cold face,” “party face,” “pleading face,” and “face with hearts” symbols releasing this Fall.

To go alongside the announcement, Apple unveiled emoji-fied headshots of its executives on its website.
