The holiday was created three years ago by the founder of"Emoji-pedia, a website that keeps track of all emojis

For iOS 11, Apple is including a breastfeeding woman, a bearded person, a woman wearing a scarf, a man practicing Yoga and more.

There will also be new animals and mythical creatures like T-Rex, Zebra, Zombie and Elf and new smiley faces which now have exploding heads and vomiting.

Apple announced the 56 new emojis, and according to The Guardian, these, like all emojis, were created by the Unicode Consortium, the nonprofit organization that actually makes the emojis for public utilization. Apple timed its release to coincide with World Emoji Day, and these designs represent the official Apple take on the Unicode 5.0 standard emoji list that was officially released this past May.

Arsenal seeking fresh blood, Sanchez to stay - Wenger
Sanchez had scored 24 league goals in 38 matches last season. 'The whole interview that I got didn't really mean that. Mesut Ozil: 'I hope Alexis stays but I don't know what the status is to be perfectly honest.

Now, Gene with the help of his handy best friend Hi-5 and the most wonderful code breaker emoji they embark on a journey to Jailbreak.

Emojis have gained vast popularity during online conversations, so much so companies have started adding new ones based on something that is trending across the globe, be it a fashion statement or a social message, and Apple has added a few to its fold this World Emoji Day - whatever that may be.

Today is July 17th, which marks World Emoji Day, a celebration of all things emoji.

Indian soldier killed in Pakistani firing
ANI now reports that an Army jawan has been critically injured in Pakistani firing along the LOC in the Nowgam sector of Handwara. The children were ferried from the school in bulletproof vehicles during the intermittent shelling by Pakistan, Choudhary said.

Dedicated fans gathered in cities like Dubai, Dublin, and Moscow to set a new Guinness Record for donning emoji-face costumes simultaneously in advance of World Emoji Day and the release of The Emoji Movie on July 28.

Emoji - the actual pictograms you use on your smartphone - were born out of a similar frustration in Japan with the limits of text.

New additions to the iPhone software included a Selfie character, whiskey glass, cowboy hat face, sneezing face, shaking hands, and thumbs down. Apple is also rumored to launch the iPhone 8 later this year, which is nearly certainly set to arrive with iOS 11 pre-installed.

Family claims man rescued at sea killed mom, grandfather for inheritance
Nathan was rescued a week later from a life raft more than 100 nautical miles from Martha's Vineyard. John Chakalos was shot three times and killed in December 2013, according to authorities.

It's unclear at this point whether these emoji will become a part of Apple's upcoming iOS 11, macOS High Sierra or watchOS 4 beta builds.
