Racially diverse emoji coming to iOS and OS X

iPhone and Mac owners, prepare to be politically correct. Apple has released a new set of racially diverse emoji on the iOS and OS X betas.


Those who are on the beta OSes have reportedly seen a new set of emoji. By pressing and holding any of the human faces / body parts in the People section of the emoji picker, a popup with an additional set of skin tones emerge. There are six new skin tones, ranging from black to bright yellow. Now aren’t you glad you can send that racially accurate happy faced emoji? 

Besides the skin tones, Apple has also updated iPhone emoji with the more recent iPhone 6, and they also included a new Apple iWatch emoji.

The new emoji set is only available in the new iOS 8.3 beta 2 and OS X 10.10.3 pre-release update. iPhone and Mac users will get to try the emoji as soon as the OS gets out of beta and is released to everyone.
