The new creations will be introduced to iPhone users with the release of iOS 15.4, which is currently in beta, MacRumors reported. The designs were originally selected in September 2021 by the Unicode Consortium, a non-profit organization that oversees emoji standards on all devices.

Emojipedia, the emoji reference site, shared Apple’s designs for new illustrations this week after they were revealed in the iOS 15.4 beta.
The version includes 37 new emoji, including a face that melts, a hand that greets and a lip design.
Pregnant man and multiracial handshake are the latest emoji
The two most talked about designs are the pregnant man and the pregnant person.
As Emojipedia explains, it can be used to “represent transgender men, non-binary people, or women with short hair,” according to People magazine.
Although the goal is to offer a more inclusive design to a variety of smartphone users, the “pregnant man” emoji has sparked controversy online.
“How can you make emojis something that doesn’t exist?” asked one Twitter user, and another user responded with an emoji depicting a unicorn.
Many posts criticizing pregnant emojis are political, and some users have attacked the “left” of the new design.
“If you don’t like the pregnant man emoji, wouldn’t you use it?” Political reporter Tom Harwood said.
Other users have pointed out that emojis are not always used for their original purpose, just like the eggplant emoji that originated from just tagging a fruit.
The original symbols of pregnant women were also used as a way to show that someone was full after a meal.
After release, Apple’s emoji may look different than those offered by Google and other companies, as phone manufacturers usually customize the design to suit their own style.
Apple hasn’t revealed a release date for iOS 15.4, but MacWorld expects it to open to iPhone users around April.
