The syringe emoji design changed to a more generic one, the blood drops and blood inside syringe removed, and the new AirPods Max influenced design of the headphones emoji.

A more general studio headphones emoji design changed to feature the new AirPods Max headphones.
👩❤️💋👨 Kiss: Woman, Man design changed to be inline with its name, with the woman now on the left and the man on the right.
