Apple has revealed a glimpse of some of the 70 new emojis it will introduce to its devices later this year.

The designs include new hairstyles, new emojis for people with red and grey hair, and a new emoji for bald people.

There'll be a number of new animals, including the kangaroo, peacock, parrot and lobster.

Smiley faces will also have a greater range of expressions - including cold face, party face, pleading face and a new face with hearts.

New food items include mango, lettuce, cupcake, and mooncake.

The emojis will be introduced in a software update later this year, but no date has been announced yet.

In addition to the 70 new emojis, Apple says there are more to come including a new superhero, a softball, an infinity symbol and a nazar amulet (an eye-shaped object believed to ward off evil).

Last year, the most popular emoji was the face with tears of joy emoji, followed by the red heart and the smiley face with heart eyes, according to a University of Michigan study.
