Right here’s how the Unicode Consortium describes the discharge:

The brand new emoji characters had been in the beginning previewed again in March and because then, the consortium has finalized the discharge to incorporate 56 new emoji characters. New figures come with a vampire, a sandwich, broccoli, coconut, fairy, mage, and plenty of extra. Emojipedia outlines all of them:

As for when Unicode 10 will make its solution to iOS, we’re most likely having a look at someday later this 12 months or early subsequent 12 months. The discharge of Unicode 10 is apparently too past due for inclusion in iOS 11, and it might make sense for Apple to avoid wasting new emoji for a smaller replace, reminiscent of iOS 11.1 or iOS 11.2 so as to trap customers to improve. iOS 11 contains its personal fair proportion of options that are supposed to make it a no brainer replace for the general public.
Final summer time, Unicode 9.0 was once made professional with 72 new emoji together with bacon, selfie, and a clown face. Nearly all of the Unicode 9.0 emoji made their solution to iOS with iOS 10.2, so we’d be expecting a an identical development this 12 months.
What do you recall to mind the brand new emoji incorporated in Unicode 10? Now that this model is out the door, consideration has already shifted in opposition to Unicode 11, which thus far is composed of items reminiscent of a take a look at tube, lab coat, firecracker, and extra.
