New Emoji's Released For Apple Customers! Check Em Out!

Apple’s new iOS 13.2 now has 457 gender neutral options for current human characters. Additionally, Apple users now have the option to mix and match two women, two men, or a woman and man, while a new combination shows people holding hands without a specific gender.

 The new emojis are now able to be even more customized with race and gender because a wider variety of skin tones are available. To further stress the importance of representation in emoji characters, there are now more disability-themed emoji options as well, including those with characters in wheelchairs, with prosthetic limbs and representing the vision-impaired. These are now known as new accessibility-focused emojis.

In support of women’s issues, a period emoji has also been introduced, which looks like the raindrop emoji, but is instead red in color. The update is the result of a request made by Apple in March 2018 to request more emojis that were inclusive of those with disabilities in a proposal sent to the Unicode Consortium.
