With each update, emoji are becoming more true to life. After previously announcing all the new emoji that would be coming to devices in the coming year, Apple has now offered a closer look at certain major changes in celebration of World Emoji Day on July 17. One significant change in particular will allow for a more accurate representation of families, friends, and couples.
You know how the current emoji depicting a couple holding hands is all yellow? The same goes for the various family emoji and even the handshake emoji. Well, Apple is making it so that various skin tones can be selected in emoji depicting more than one person. This means there will be more than 75 additional combinations!
Available this Fall, other new emoji will include service and guide dogs, more clothing options, and food items like a waffle, falafel, and butter. Get a closer look at the ones Apple has highlighted ahead.
