It’s that time of year: new emoji season! Apple’s just-launched iOS 16.4 update adds emoji like a moose, a goose, a pink heart, and, importantly for Verge readers, a Wi-Fi symbol. I’m something of an emoji fan, so I’m personally thrilled to have a few more options, though I’m still thinking of a clever use for the jellyfish emoji. Emojipedia has a good overview of the emoji that are being added, if you want to know ahead of time.
The update doesn’t just bring new emoji; there are a handful of other small additions as well. You’ll now be able to get push notifications from Safari web apps on your homescreen, which could make web apps a lot more useful than they currently are. The company is also adding voice isolation for voice calls and further optimizing Crash Detection for iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro phones.
If you want to download and install iOS 16.4 on your iPhone, go to Settings > General > Software Update, and the update should be there for you. (If not, you might just have to wait a few minutes — Apple’s updates sometimes take just a bit to roll out.) And if you’re on a Mac, macOS Ventura 13.3 is available now, too.
Here’s the full iOS 16.4 release notes, from Apple:
