Apple has released 77 new emojis on the new iOS12.1 alongside new apple products on the 30th October. With these new emojis came new hair options as well as animals such as a llama and swan. Bagels, a mango and a salt shaker are a few of the new food emojis and a lacrosse and frisbee sporting emoji. There were a few miscellaneous emojis such as a teddy bear, magnet and a ball of wool.

Ask yourself, what is the message my brand is trying to put across? Then think of this in terms of photos.
