If you found the emojis to be a little limited when it came to racial and sexual diversity, you’ll be happy to know that Apple is looking to change this and spice things up a bit. Last year the company promised that more diverse emojis would be coming and it looks like in the latest OS X beta that was seeded to developers, Apple made good on that promise.
Your emojis will now have more diversity. The folks at The Next Web received several screenshots that show off new emojis that can be found in the latest OS X beta, so when the latest build has been released to the public, we should be able to get access to them.
Apple has included several different races to their emojis, as well as new family emojis which show same-sex couples with their children. I guess now there should be emojis enough to represent just about everyone. Apple also added new country flags, updated the phone emoji to better reflect Apple’s redesigned iOS, and the watch emoji for OS X has been changed to look like the Apple Watch. Emoji users should be very happy.
We don’t know when Apple is planning on releasing the latest iOS 8.3 or OS X 10.10.3 build, but a public beta is expected to start later this year, so maybe we won’t have to wait very long.
