Apple’s iOS software update includes 300 new ethnically diverse emojis

It’s only been a few years since Apple introduced emojis onto our iPhones, but they’ve already transformed our syntax irreparably, and my fellow die-hard emoji users will be interested to hear that the tech giant has delivered on its promise to create a range of racially diverse faces. The new selection includes over 300 extra characters, including tiny faces and thumbs up signs in a choice of six different skin tones which – while it’s long way from being exhaustive – certainly allows for a far greater diversity than we’ve become used to. The newbies also include same-sex families and a bunch of complex technological gadgetry. Dancing lady! Crying happy face!
