Even though there were already tons of emojis, including faces, symbols, food and clothes. The emojis lacked representation for people or darker skin tones. All of the emojis only had one option of skin tone choice which was a very fair skin color which everyone couldn’t relate to. There was also the option to use a emoji that showed a family, a man, a woman, and a male child. There was no family variety and many people advocated for more options, being that modern family structures are more diverse than that.
With the new phone update, more people can now relate to the emojis that they are using. Whenever you click on a emoji that depicts a person, 5 more emojis pop up that are all different skin colors and you can chose which one you would like to use. The family emojis now represent all types of families. The iPhone user can now chose to have a mother and a father, two mothers or two fathers.
Big ups to Apple for this update. They satisfied a lot of people and now their customers can really have fun with their emojis.
