Emojipedia notes that Apple has previewed the batch in July but it’s only today that some of the characters are shown in official form. After Emoji 13 it’s expected that there will be a delay on the next batch.

Also, Emoji 13.1 is set to have skin tone options and several new emojis such as mending heart, heart on fire, face in clouds, face exhaling and face w/ spiral eyes. In the meantime, Emoji 14 won’t be released until 2022.
