Instead of unicorns or robots, Apple's new Memoji are meant to look like you.

In celebration of World Emoji Day, Apple has released a preview of the new emoji arriving later this year in updates to iOS, macOS, and watchOS. Healthy people will enjoy texting their friends a mango or bunch of lettuce, while other will binge on cupcake and mooncake emojis.

Facebook's other top emojis include "Smiling Face With Heart-Eyes", "Face Blowing a Kiss" and "Birthday Cake".

To present people better, the latest emoji set offers various hair options including red hair, grey hair, curly and even a clean shaven bald emoji.

When is World Emoji Day?

World Emoji Day was founded by Jeremy Burge, the creator of Emojipedia, which is an unofficial Wikipedia for emojis.

Apple has today confirmed the 70 new emoji that will be coming to iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and Mac this fall.

"As always, some of the most vocal requests for new emojis are about representation, and this update delivers some of the most common requests".

Facebook now has over 2,800 emojis available for use, and some are more popular than others.

Superhero emojis of both sexes, and animal emojis such as the kangaroo, peacock and lobster, will also be introduced in Apple's upcoming iOS 12 update later this year.

A number of animals will also get their own emojis.
