Unicode 8.0 was released by the Unicode Consortium back in June, which included the one emoji Canadians have been waiting for (the Canadian flag landed ‘ages’ ago in iOS 8.3): the ice hockey stick and puck.
While the only way for users to express themselves with this new emoji was if Apple supported them, that has happened already with today’s release of iOS 9.1 beta.
That’s right baby, you will soon be able to send an ice hockey stick and puck to your friends once iOS 9.1 is out publicly, which should be sometime in early October we’re guessing, just in time for the start of the 2015-2016 NHL season.
The Next Web has posted an image of the new emojis in iOS 9.1 beta, which you can see below (we’ve highlighted the hockey stick and puck):
Apple didn’t hold back, as the ‘middle finger’ emoji was also included, plus some other miscellaneous ones. What’s your favourite emoji? Are you looking forward to passing the hockey stick and puck soon?
