Apple Introduces More Diverse And Inclusive New Emojis For World Emoji Day

Apple is previewing a selection of new emojis coming this fall

Take a peek at some of the 59 new emoji designs coming to Apple devices this fall! They bring even more diversity to the keyboard, alongside fun and exciting additions to popular categories of food, animals, activities and smiley faces.

In a major update to the Holding Hands emoji typically used to represent couples and relationships, users will now be able to select any combination of skin tone, in addition to gender, to personalize the people holding hands, opening up more than 75 possible combinations.

Following Apple’s proposal to the Unicode Consortium last year to introduce more disability-themed emoji, a new guide dog, an ear with a hearing aid, wheelchairs, a prosthetic arm and a prosthetic leg will be available in the emoji keyboard. Celebrating diversity in all its many forms is integral to Apple’s values and these new options help fill a significant gap in the emoji keyboard.

Animals are always the cutest! It’s time to welcome the new animal emojis like the sloth, flamingo, orangutan and skunk.

 

What’s this new essential emoji? A new smiley face for yawning that suits your #MondayBlues mood!

 

It’s always good to have more emojis of food that include a waffle, garlic and ice. There are also butter and falafel emojis.

A banjo, parachute, kite and yo-yo… many additional emoji categories are getting exciting updates! A total of 59 new emoji designs will be available this fall with a free software update for iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple Watch. Thousands of emojis are currently available, including emotive smiley faces, gender-neutral characters, more professions, various clothing options, food types, animals, mythical creatures and more. New emojis are created based on the approved characters in Unicode 12.0. Are you looking forward for this?
