New emoji release to include Ginger people, superheroes & more!

The Unicode Consortium has announced Emoji 11.0, a brand new batch of emojis that will be released on 5 June 2018.

According to the consortium, "Emoji 11.0 marks the first time new components are available for hair color. Options are provided for red hair, curly hair, white hair, and baldness and these are available for use in sequences for men and women of any skin tone."

Some apps may only have the new batch available later in the year though, as pointed out by Emojipedia: if past releases are anything to go by, some companies such as Twitter or EmojiOne may add these emojis soon after June, and larger players like Apple and Google tend to save their updates for major OS releases in September or October."
