iOS 8.3 Creates Diversified Emojis

Emojis in six skin tones will be available in the keyboards of Apple mobile devices.

Apple is preparing to update iOS 8.3, six new screens with 300 new emojis will be added. New stickers will include same-sex relationship emojis, six skin tones, and families with two mothers and two fathers, writes Forbes.

Emojis were created in Japan in the 90’s and were incorporated into Unicode. The Unicode Consortium standardized the icons to ensure a consistent experience across multiple platforms. At the end of the last year, representatives of the Unicode Consortium said that they are planning to add more diversity for users.

“Apple supports and cares deeply about diversity, and is working with The Unicode Consortium to update the standard so that it better represents diversity for all of us,” commented an Apple spokesperson to ABC TV.
