The biggest day for emoji sends around the world is December 31, which is New Year's Eve.

According to Facebook, Taiwan's most popular Facebook emoji is the "Party Popper".

Here are the 70 new emoji coming to iOS

The new leafy green and mooncake emojis are meant to celebrate Chinese culture, specifically the Mid-Autumn Festival, Mashable reported. Ever since instant messaging took over the reins of day-to-day communication, emojis or emoticons have been frequently used by people to express their feelings in a way that is comprehensible to the recipient.

Each company that uses emojis in their products puts their own spin on the tiny cartoons and picks which options from the master list to include.

A centerpiece of the emoji additions this year will be improved diversity in hair options, including red hair, gray hair, curly hair, and bald.

Check out the images below for a closer look at all the new emoji arriving on Apple devices soon.

Apple still hasn't revealed when the software update will be launched, but already shared the new emojis, including some new food types and animals.
