People are going wild over new emoji and they predict it will be used a lot

Twenty-one new emojis will finally be made available on iPhones today (March 29) through iOS 16.4.

The highly requested pink heart will be making her debut, which is outrageous to consider its taken us this long.

We'll also be getting stop/push hands, a few new animals, some plants and a face that looks like it will be used a lot.


A shaking face will be included in the new update and it is meant to indicate shock or excessive movement, or hell, maybe both.

No doubt this will be a new favourite amongst users.

One user wrote: "I'm gonna use the HELL out that shaking face emoji."


Another said: "I love the shaking face emoji as well So, If I am scared, or excited I can actually use that emoji lol."

While another shared: "That shaking face emoji……..hold on."

You'll also be able to find a pea pod, ginger, angel wing, maracas, jellyfish, flute, folding hand fan, hair pick moose, donkey and a khanda – the symbol of the Sikh faith and many more.

Additionally, a ‘pushing’ hand will be available in a range of skin tones.


So, if you want to throw major shade at someone, now’s your chance, people.


And yes, the internet is absolutely buzzing over these new graphics, so expect to see a lot of them over the next few days.

However, the new emojis won’t be the only thing iPhone users can get excited about, as iOS 16.4 has multiple new updates.

And what are these, you ask? Well, Apple now has a page-turning animation (again), which is just music to many's ears - including Mitchell Clark from The Verge.

Clark hilariously complained that Apple took the joy out of reading books when it removed its page-turning animation with the iOS 16 update.


"Flipping through the pages of a virtual book that you bought from iTunes is now absolutely charmless," he said.

Well, rejoice now, Mitchell.

And for all you podcast lovers out there, Apple Podcasts has been revamped, so you can now use the Channels menu to store all your favourite podcasts in one place.

Efficiency and organisation, we love to see it!

Voice Isolation is now available for calls, which was only previously available through FaceTime.

But now, while you’re on the go, you can hit that button for a more precise, crisp voice and block out the background noise while speaking to someone on the other end.

Also, you’ll be stoked to know Home Kit Architecture has returned.

The new tool brings ‘improved performance and reliability of the accessories in your home', according to Apple.

So, there you have it. Have a play around today to discover all updates waiting for you, folks.
