Your iPhone or iPad will restart again, and once it turns back on you should be running the iOS 11.1 beta with all the new emoji that come with it.

The fifth generation of emoji will contain up to 69 new characters, according to Emojipedia, bringing the total number of approved emoji to 2666 as of June.

Designed after the hand sign that means "I love you" in American Sign language, this new gesture emoji will help you spread the love in a new way via text and social media comments. Charge your devices! Apple just announced 56 new emojis coming to an iPhone near you in the coming weeks, and we're freaking out.

Apple is giving us an early look at some of the new emoji coming to iOS 11.1 beta next week. On tap are new emoji modeled after a giraffe, hedgehog, grasshopper, and yet another dinosaur emoji.

Good news for lovers of emoji.

There will also be updated national flags (England, Scotland and Wales are finally getting their own flags), and all human emojis will be available in different genders and skin tones. These include gender-neutral characters, more clothing options, food types, mythical creatures, and more.

There's also a couple new smiley faces, including a shhh smiley you might use in a library, a monocle smiley, an angry looking one with a censored profanity over the mouth, and a "grinning face with insane eyes". You'll fine a woman with a headscarf, bearded person, breastfeeding and person sitting in the lotus position. That being said, Apple has made it up to us with the addition of a pie emoji and a Chinese takeout box emoji as well.
