Apple has confirmed that a string of new emoji will be made available with iOS 11.1, the first major update to its newly released operating system.

Finally, iOS 11 is here in all its glory, and in case the software's new features weren't exciting enough, Apple is also releasing hundreds of new emoji. A public beta preview is coming next week.

The new emojis which Apple is bringing will include new faces like a silly face, a swearing face, a face making the "shhh" gesture and a face with a monocle, along with gender-neutral characters.

Other upcoming emojis, according to Apple, include ones with sign language, mythical creatures such as a male fairy and animals, including a giraffe and hedgehog.

The new emoji will be available on all Mac devices and talking about iPhone X, it may get more fun emojis.

iOS 11.1 is becoming more inclusive and, in some cases, gender-neutral.
