Apple is also adding an infinity symbol, or an infinite loop as math nerds have quipped for generations. Superheroes and an all-seeing eye are also in the works.

Food and Animals

Lastly, Apple showed us new food and animals being added in iOS 12. The peacock is stunning (for an emoji) when blown up, while the icing on the cupcake is a little suspect.
