Daily events beg for instant, accurate emotions, and Apple is providing new emojis that cover a wide range of them — a shrug, crossed fingers, and the facepalm. 

On Tuesday, Apple released its first beta version of its iOS 10.2 software update for its iPhone, iPad and iPod touch products. The developer preview will include 72 new emojis. Other additions include job descriptions like teacher, astronaut, scientist, firefighter and pilot. 

Apple has not announced an official release date for the iOS 10.2 software, but the new symbols, approved as part of Unicode 9.0 in June, are expected to be available later this month. 

So when you hear something ridiculous that makes you want to roll on the floor laughing, well, Apple will have the emoji available for you to express your feelings.

Buzzfeed compiled a complete list of the new emoji, covering the bases from clown faces to avocados.
