Apple Adds More Gender-Diverse Emoji to iOS 10

Apple PR:

More than one hundred new and redesigned emoji characters will be available to iPhone and iPad users this fall with iOS 10. This exciting update brings more gender options to existing characters, including new female athletes and professionals, adds beautiful redesigns of popular emoji, a new rainbow flag and more family options.

Apple is working closely with the Unicode Consortium to ensure that popular emoji characters reflect the diversity of people everywhere.

The new emoji are included in Beta 4. I have it installed on my iPhone, and everything looks great. Even better, emoji are now slightly bigger, which makes them easier to see. Still, Apple could make emoji even more accessible, and I really hope they eventually add search as well.
