The COVID-19 outbreak has caused delays in hardware production and software updates alike. New content and features have been postponed for several platforms and a recent report has revealed that new emojis for Android and iOS will be delayed as well.

The not for profit organization Unicode Consortium (UC) announced yesterday that it is delaying the release of Emoji 14.0 due to the virus outbreak. The new set of emojis that were scheduled to arrive in fall 2021 will not make it to major platforms until spring 2022.
