Take a look at the new emoji coming with iOS 14.5.
Two notable highlights:
- The blood is removed from the syringe emoji, making it more representative of vaccines
- The headphone emoji moves from a more generic headphone to a very specific AirPods Max
One thing I find interesting about moments of emoji change is that if I text, say, a headphone emoji from the new beta and you receive it on the latest public iOS release, you’ll see the old headphones even though I sent the AirPods Max.
