Apple iPhone Emojis is just another world for us to play in.
If you want to thank a single company for popularizing emoji globally, look no farther than Apple. The company that gave us Steve Jobs’ leadership style, super in-demand handhelds like the iPhone, and the simplicity of everything syncing together seamlessly, also ensured that emojis would catch on all over the world.
The first iPhone had a few Emojis but by 2011 that Apple began to officially support emojis internationally with the iOS 5 release. In just five, short years, these pictographs that started out from the imagination of one man working at NTT DoCoMo have become an indelible standard on mobile devices throughout the globe.
Apple has now got a few surprises when it comes to the latest Emojis. The iPhone will include “5.0” pack of icons is everything from broccoli and a brain, to a breastfeeding mom. Elsewhere on the food front, you’ll find a fortune cookie, wontons, a freshly baked pie, a sandwich, and a pretzel. Brits will be happy at the inclusion of England, Scotland and Wales flags.
Willem Van Lancker, a former Apple employee, designed hundreds of emoji for the iPhone. Whilst the original inventor is Shigetaka Kurita, he created his first Emojis in 1998 in Japan. Emoji is the Japanese term for picture characters.
