Your emoji keyboard is about to get an update. Apple announced this week that iOS 11.1 will include 56 new emojis based on the most recent Unicode update.

Unicode 10.0 was announced back in July, but now we know exactly what Apple will be including, and what they’ll look like.

In a blog post, Apple mentioned that the new symbols soon to be at your fingertips will include: Woman with Headscarf, Bearded Person, Breastfeeding, Zombie, Person in Lotus Position and new food items such as Sandwich and Coconut. Also included in the update is the Love-You Gesture, designed after the “I love you” hand sign in American Sign Language.

There will also be a world of mythical creatures, including male and female fairies, mages, vampires, zombies, and merpeople. And people in colder climes will be able to remind loved ones to wear their scarf while sledding (or curling) exclusively with emojis.
