iOS 15.4 Adds New Emoji Like Melting Face, Biting Lip, Heart Hands, Troll and More

With the iOS 15.4 update that was introduced today, Apple has added support for Emoji 14, introducing a selection of new emoji like melting face, biting lip, heart hands, and more. There are 37 new emoji and 75 skin tone additions in Emoji 14, resulting in a total of 112 characters.

iOS 15
New faces include melting face, saluting face, face with open eyes and hand over mouth, face with peeking eye, face with diagonal mouth, and dotted line face, while new emojis include biting lip and bubbles.

There are several new hand emojis, such as heart hands, rightwards hand, leftwards hand, palm down hand, palm up hand, hand with index finger and thumb crossed, index pointing at the viewer, along with an update to the handshake emoji.


Nest with eggs, empty nest, x-ray, crutch, playground slide, wheel, ring buoy, hamsa, mirror ball, jar, identification card, and low battery are new items, while plants and animals will include coral and lotus. As for fantasy characters, we can expect a new troll emoji, and eggs, beans, and pouring liquid make up new food items.

The new emoji are available on the iPhone and iPad with iOS 15.4 and iPadOS 15.4, plus the Mac with macOS Monterey 12.3.

You can NOT count the number of times I will send my girlfriend an empty battery emoji.

I really wish they had a better system for searching emojis. There's so many these days that it's hard to scroll through and the keywords don't always bring up the right ones.

Tapping the smiley emoji in the bottom left corner of the keyboard pulls up a pretty usable search box.

Same fight I have with my wife daily. I see it sitting on the counter and pick it up, battery in the red. I take it to a charger and she wanders around looking for it. “Where’s my phone?!” Where it should be!

Even worse is she always forgets to plug it in at night, the only time it’s not in her hand being used. I gave her my 12 pro max and it had 97% health in October. It’s now at 88% lol
