Apple just previewed the new emojis coming to the iPhone and Mac later this year

Apple just previewed the new emojis coming to the iPhone and Mac later this yearThe selection of emojis supported by the Unicode Standard continues to expand with each passing year. In turn, Apple over the years has slowly but surely expanded its own set of supported emojis in iOS. The upside, of course, is that there now appears to be an emoji for almost anything imaginable. The downside, though, is that trying to find an emoji that you know exists can sometimes result in a large amount of scrolling back and forth. No matter, Apple's emoji library is about to get a lot more expansive. In celebration of World Emoji Day --- which apparently is a thing -- Apple earlier today published a list of 12 new emojis set to arrive on all of Apple's platforms later this year. So whether you're texting from an iPhone, an iPad, your Mac or even your Apple Watch, you'll be able to enjoy a new slate of emojis that includes a zombie, a man doing yoga, and a selection of new smiley emojis. Apple's press release reads in part:

With thousands of emoji available on iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and Mac, there are many ways to add personality to every message. New emoji include Woman with Headscarf, Bearded Person and Breastfeeding, 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 new Star-Struck and Exploding Head smiley faces make any message more fun.
Some other emojis on the way include a sandwich, a genie, and perhaps other items such as a wizard, a half-empty glass of scotch and more. In the meantime, here is a close look at 12 new emoji designs that will be coming to all Apple devices over the next few months.

No, a fart didn't cause an American Airlines flight to evacuate all its passengers

No, a fart didn't cause an American Airlines flight to evacuate all its passengersIn today's "Not The Onion" news, an American Airlines flight supposedly had to evacuate all its passengers after a person "passed gas," causing violent episodes of nausea and headaches.  Except that this isn't true. SEE ALSO: Sorry everyone, but that shocking Amelia Earhart photo has been debunked — twice The story, which originally appeared on local WNCN-TV, quotes an unidentified spokesperson with Raleigh-Durham International Airport as saying that all passengers were taken off the plane after it landed at around 4 p.m. The incident allegedly started when passengers on the flight "became ill with nausea and headaches" spurred by a foul-smelling odor in the cabin. However, American Airlines spokesman Ross Feinstein categorically denied this report. Feinstein told Mashable that "the flight was not evacuated, and the story is not true".  He said the plane had a odor issue, but that was due to a mechanical fault, not "passed gas." “We did have an aircraft from Charlotte to RDU this afternoon, that landed at 2:19 p.m. ET, and arrived the gate at 2:21 p.m. ET, that is currently out of service for an actual mechanical issue – and odor in the cabin. But it is not due to 'passed gas' as mentioned,” Feinstein said. A spokesman at the airport, Andrew Sawyer, also confirmed that the plane was not evacuated, and said the whole incident was about a passenger who had to receive medical help after a foul smell: "A medical call for someone overcome by an odor was received after the plane deplaned normally," he said.  The story was picked up by many news outlets, including NBC, The Daily Telegraph, and Fox News: Passengers on an American Air flight to Raleigh were forced to evacuate after someone 'passed gas,' officials said https://t.co/JUysbmlVyu pic.twitter.com/A5fqxfJ1np — NBC Charlotte (@wcnc) July 17, 2017 American Airlines flight evacuated in Raleigh, NC due to epic fart. https://t.co/pk3ekxPzsm@BigfootStacy @BAMedia45 @Grimerica @RT_com — FRINGE Media (@FreidrichDean) July 17, 2017 Image: google/screenshot WATCH: How ‘The Walking Dead’ Season 2 diverged from the comics
