  • Here are the 70 new emoji coming to iOS

Over 70 emojis are coming to iPhone with Apple's new software update later this year.

The new characters will include more diverse representations of people, including those with red, grey and curly hair - or even no hair at all. On top of that, there are also new smiley faces with a party face, a cold face, and - our personal favourite - a pleading face.

More than 700 million are used on Facebook posts each day, with the biggest day being New Year's Eve (December 31, 2017) that saw the highest amount of emojis shared on both platforms.

Well it doesn't matter because we have them now - loads of them in fact - and there are more to come!

And if you're wondering if any of your favourite celebs share their birthday with World Emoji Day, you'd be right: Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, David Hasselhoff, Donald Sutherland and Will Ferrel are all celebrating today.
