iOS 12.1 gives the phone emoji a refresh, to look like the new iPhones.
With iOS 12.1, Apple has introduced over 70 new and improved emojis. Along with new hair colours, food emojis and sports icons, the phone emoji has been updated.
Despite the iPhone X being out a year, the phone emoji on iOS reflected a white iPhone 6 or 6S. It seems now that emoji loses the home button and bezels, and matches the design of the iPhone X, XS and XR.
The number of icons on the emoji has also been increased, which matches the increased grid size on the new iPhone XS and XS Max. The two emojis 'Mobile Phone' and 'Phone Call' have been redesigned.
The Apple Watch emoji hasn't changed to reflect the Series 4, but Apple may have forgotten that, and with the next beta of iOS 12.1, we may see it.
iOS 12.1 brings Group FaceTime back, new emojis and eSIM Support to the newer iPhones, and should be released to the public by November. What's your favourite new emoji? Let us know on our social media!
