For as often as iPhone users make use of emojis, it's easy to forget that the standard emoji keyboard we've come to know and love didn't make its official debut on the iPhone until iOS 5 debuted back in 2011. Since then, Apple has steadily increased the selection of available emojis while also taking steps to make them more diverse. And while Apple certainly isn't the only platform to feature an impressive array of emojis, I think it's fair to say that Apple's emoji designs are far more creative and detailed than what one has historically seen on platforms like Google and Twitter, as illustrated by this 2014 piece in the Huffington Post.
