Yawn Face, Flamingo and Sloth have all joined the emoji party

Apple have now released their iOS 13.2 software update for iPhones which brings 398 new emojis to your keyboard.  Announced earlier this year, the new emoji designs were confirmed in a blog post from Emojipedia and if you update your iPhone, you'll have access to all of them.  It makes the keyboard for messaging far more diverse than it ever has been with the addition of people holding hands with a mix of skin tones, people in wheelchairs and people with a hearing aid or cane.

A new white heart has been added, along with a selection of new animals including sloth, flamingo, skunk, otter, orangutan and guide dog.
