iOS 10.2: New emoji included in latest Apple update

New software available to testers now.

Apple has unveiled the next iOS 10 update, iOS 10.2, including new and redesigned emoji and a host of other tweaks and refinements.

Obviously, the new emoji are the big story here. As iOS 10 allows users to send larger icons, Apple has redesigned some classics, including the dancing lady, to add more detail.

It has also included 76 new icons, which form part of the wider Unicode 9 emoji code. These include a new selfie smiley, fist bumps, crossed fingers and a sneezing face.

Those who prefer to keep their texts emoji-free will also find a number of new features. Not least among them are seven new wallpapers and the chance to preserve your iPhone’s camera settings, so you don’t need to tinker with them every time you open the app.

Also new is the option to have the video app as a widget within notification centre.

iOS 10.2 is available now to Apple developers and those signed up to its free beta testing programme.

An official, public launch is likely scheduled for iPhones and iPads by the end of the year.
