About Apple Emojis

Apple emojis are used on iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch and Apple TV. These are part of the Apple Color Emoji font which comes with iOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS. Apple's emoji set is also used in Signal, Telegram and Slack for Android and web.

Apple Watch includes separate support for animated emoji stickers, and iPhone X supports the interactive Animoji feature. The following two Private Use Area characters are not cross-platform compatible but do work on Apple devices:

  •  Apple logo
  • Beats 1 logo

New emojis are now available as part of iOS 11.1. See what's new.
