Apple Devices Could Have Reversible Emoji Next Year
The Unicode Consortium has proposed new guidelines that would allow for reversible emoji. In other words, emojis such as a car or train that currently face to the left or right only would be able to face either direction.
Apple and other vendors would be able to choose which emoji can be reversible on their devices, if any, according to their preferences.
The guidelines are still a draft that should be finalized by time the next major batch of over 100 new emoji characters are made available for companies like Apple to implement starting in the second half of 2018.
