Apple reveals new culturally diverse emoji
Apple is seeking to promote diversity as the company has unveiled a list of new culturally diverse emoji for its latest operating systems, OS X 10.10.3 and iOS 8.3 beta 2.
The new emoji have different varieties of skin tones and hair colours which is accessible through a dropdown menu on each icon.
For now, there are six options to choose from, except for the yellow-coloured skin tone emoji believed to represent Asians, which has been criticised by many before this.
Though obviously we have more than six different skin and hair colours, the addition of the new emojis are certainly the right step.
The new list of diverse emojis will only appear on supported devices and devices running on the latest software.
Also, Apple has also replaced its “watch” emoji to none other than the “Apple Watch”.
