If you’ve always felt that emojis were a little limited when it came to racial and sexual diversity, we suppose we understand, but thankfully that is something that Apple is looking to change. The company had promised last year that more diverse emojis were set to arrive and it looks like in the latest OS X beta that was seeded to developers, Apple made good on their promise.
The folks at The Next Web have recently received several screenshots that shows off new emojis that can be found in the latest OS X beta, meaning that when the latest build has been released to the public, we should be able to expect them as well. As you can see from the screenshots, Apple has included a variety of different races to the list of emojis, as well as new family emojis which shows same-sex couples with their children.
Apart from the new diverse emojis, Apple has also added new country flags to the list, updated the phone emoji to better reflect Apple’s redesigned iOS, and the watch emoji for OS X has also been changed to look like the Apple Watch. No word on when Apple is planning on releasing the latest iOS 8.3 or OS X 10.10.3 build yet, but with a public beta expected to kick off later this year, perhaps we won’t have to wait too long to try it out for ourselves.
