CUPERTINO, Calif. (1010 WINS) -- What do mosquitoes, frisbees and bald people have in common? They’re all getting emoji to represent them.

Apple said this week that it’s adding more than 70 new emoji for the iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and Mac.

Among the new characters are people with red hair, gray hair, curly hair and no hair. There’s also a range of new emotive smiley faces, including new ones to reflect your undying love and party spirit.

Enjoy hiking or playing lacrosse and softball? You’ll now be able to express that in a text, along with softball and skateboarding.

New animal emoji have also been revealed, among them: the majestic llama, elegant swan and much-maligned mosquito.

There’s also a new batch of food and object emoji, including a moon cake, saltshaker, nazar amulet, and red envelope for Chinese New Year. The long-requested mango is also getting its due.

And then there's the new bagel emoji. New Yorkers have been waiting a long time for this one, though the un-toasted and un-schmeared result is kind of frightening and had many Twitter users up in arms.
