July 17, 2019

It will also arrive on iPad and Mac this fall.

To celebrate World Emoji Day, Apple has previewed a bunch of new emoji that’s coming later this fall. The new designs aim to add more diversity to your keyboard, ranging from food, animals and even places.

Aside from including more emojis to represent couples and relationships (through the Holding Hands emoji), the new emojis now includes more than 75 possible combinations of skin tone and gender.

Additionally, there are also new disability-themed emoji in the form of guide dogs, wheelchairs and even a prosthetic arm and leg. This was part of Apple’s proposal to the Unicode Consortium last year to help include more options that should fill a gap in the emoji keyboard.

A total of 59 new emojis will be available this fall through a free software update coming to the iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple Watch. The new emoji are created based on the approved characters in Unicode 12.0.
