There's an umbrella emoji. A ghost emoji. Numerous glittering star emoji. The poop emoji is such an icon of the times you can buy it as a chuffing pillow.

Apple's purpose behind these emoji is to simplify the process of adding multiple emoji for one expression: at present, if you want to depict a female artist you have to add an emoji of a woman, followed by the paint pallet.
Apple thinks it would be much easier to just have some additional professions added to the list. It uses something called the 'Emoji ZWJ Sequence', which you can find out more about with this video from the Emojipedia.
