Getting more creative with the emojis, Apple is customizing the popular text-friendly images for their users.
Offering new gender and race options, the Apple iOS 10 update has some new emojis ready to be added to regular, everyday conversations via the internet and text. With redesigns and new additions, there are 100 plus new emojis offered in the most recent update. Want to use a Black Santa? Looking to express your gay pride with a rainbow flag? Feeling like showing a picture that represents your specific family structure? There is now an emoji for that.
Personalizing the way people communicate with each other, emojis add individuality and creativity to text; representation only adds to the conversation.
In an effort to make emojis more realistic, Apple is “working closely with the Unicode Consortium to ensure that popular emoji characters reflect the diversity of people everywhere.”
