iPhone software “iOS 17.3” has been released equipped with a new wallpaper design, but the public beta “iOS 17.4 Beta”, which tests the next newest system, is also available.
What I'd particularly like to pay attention to in this beta are the newly designed emojis.
Why not get ahead of the increasing variety of emojis, like the nodding face or the person moving to the right?
“iOS 17.4 Beta” lets you quickly try out the latest emojis
Download the trial software now.
Here we'll continue the settings process using a device running iOS 16.4 or later.
Select “Software Update” from “General” in the Settings app.
Next, go to “Beta Update” and check “iOS 17 Public Beta”.
After selecting the trial version, press the “Back” button at the top.
Click the “Update Now” button displayed on “iOS 17.4 Beta” to start the download.
Beta versions still in development may contain bugs or flaws, so we recommend that you back up your data before updating.
Provide emojis that can express yes/no
Once you download the beta, take a peek at the new emojis.
First, in the “Smileys and People” category, emojis include those that express the gesture of shaking the face vertically or horizontally.
It looks like it would be possible to use this emoji instead of yes/no.
This item shows people sitting or moving forward, facing the right side of the screen.
Until now, people walking and others were only turning left, so it seems like it will be possible to select which emoji fits the use case best.
Just like with traditional human emoji, you can select skin and hair color from six styles with a long press.
Don't miss the flaming phoenix and new mushrooms
In the Animals & Nature section, new arrivals include a bright red phoenix covered in flames and a brown mushroom.
The broken chain illustration featured in “Things” can be used in scenes where something is disconnected, such as when the Wi-Fi is about to go out!
The “Food and Drink” book includes adding fresh lemon.
New emojis representing family structure have also been introduced. Find it in the “Symbols” column.
The currently available beta lets you try out 118 types of emoji, including changing a person's ringtone, so be sure to check that out.
Edit your story with new emojis for iPhone
Why not try editing your story using the emojis you've already discovered?
We also recommend converting emojis into stickers and then pasting them into your story.
Try using lesser-known emojis to create an eye-catching story.
*The design of the beta emoji may change when the official version is released.
