New emoji include woman with headscarf, bearded person, yoga master and breastfeeding mom, and food items such as sandwich and coconut. More animals and mythical creatures like T-rex, zebra, zombie and elf are a fun way to describe situations and exploding head smiley faces make any message more fun, CNN reported.

There is also a starstruck emoji and one throwing up green vomit, it said.

The emojis are Apple's interpretation of 69 new symbols approved this year by the Unicode Consortium, a nonprofit group that sets the global standard for emoji and text characters.

The headscarf-wearing women emoji was proposed by a 16- year-old Saudi girl to the consortium in September, 2016.
