2019 emoji list is getting closer to being finalized

Apple users won't receive the 2018 emoji characters on their devices until the public release of iOS 12.1 in the coming weeks. Regardless, the Unicode Standard for next year is getting ever-closer to being finalized. On Tuesday, information about the Emoji 12.0 Beta was announced. The announcement gives vendors and implementers a chance to "test the details of what might be coming in the next year," according to Emojipedia.
