Apple recently unveiled over 100 new gender diverse emojis, but there’s two in particular that stand out for us.
A rainbow flag emoji will be featured as part of Apple’s iOS 10 operating software, which will debut this fall. The flag joins a lineup that includes images for single-parent families!
The company is working “closely with the Unicode Consortium to ensure that popular emoji characters reflect the diversity of people everywhere,” officials said in a statement on Apple’s website.
Meanwhile, Apple CEO Tim Cook, who came out as gay in a 2014 Bloomberg Businessweek essay, has recently fought back against anti-LGBT legislation at the state level, including in Indiana and North Carolina.
