It was high time! Finally, emojis won’t represent Western white men and women only. It seems that Apple has received many complaints and even lawsuits.

The new update of OS X Apple iOS will have greater ethnic diversity in their Emojis aka smileys ‘people’ refers

The idea is that the new X Apple iOS update, scheduled for later this year, emojis will feature greater ethnic diversity. They will be available in six colors/races. A couple of weeks ago, the technology giant released the beta version of the new OS X Yosemite 10.10.3 and the iOS 8.3 with 300 new emojis to select from a dropdown menu with different skin tones, which appears by clicking on the chosen emoticon. Just take a look at the images above to get a better idea. In addition to emojis, the new update will also include more flags.
