Apple Unveils Their New Diversity, Disability-Themed Emojis

The new emoji coming to Android Q

"Celebrating diversity in all its many forms is integral to Apple's values and these new options help fill a significant gap in the emoji keyboard".

Apple are also releasing emoji inclusive of those with disabilities.

The company releases new emoji annually to coincide with Unicode's emoji releases, with this year's batch introducing 59 new emoji characters, as well as 75 gender variations, and 230 total emojis when gender and skin tone are taken into consideration.

Users of iPhones will soon be able to send a guide dog, an ear with a hearing aid, a person in a wheelchair, a prosthetic arm and a prosthetic leg, among other new options. In recent years, they have adopted images depicting women in professional roles such as doctors to address criticism that the symbols reinforced gender stereotypes.


The Cupertino giant designs classy, appealing emoji that catch the eye and work because they both convey their essence instantly but also have depth and elegance which repay repeated views. The proposal was approved by the consortium a few weeks later. The Cupertino-based company is adding several emoji such as a new smiley face for yawning, new food items, a one-piece swimsuit, as well as several cute critters.

There are also new foods (butter, oyster, onion, soda, juice, waffle), additional animals (flamingo, polecat, lazy, chimpanzee), clothing and various objects such as a razor and an ax.

With both the Apple and Google versions of the falafel emoji, McDearmont said, "it looks like a good emoji at a large size, but when it's smaller it looks like spaghetti and meatballs".

As you can see, Google is adding some awesome new emoji to Android that users have been requesting for quite some time.
