Apple adds racially diverse emoji, and they come in five skin shades
Apple’s racially diverse emoji have landed, and they come in five shades of skin.

On Monday Apple released beta updates to its OS X operating system, including a redesigned emoji keyboard with long-awaited skin tone modifiers, as first reported in 9to5mac.

Complaints about the lack of racial diversity in the emoji characters impelled the Unicode Consortium, an industry body devoted to developing software standards, to add skin tone options. The tones are modelled on the Fitzpatrick scale, a recognised standard used by dermatologists...

Other additions include new same-sex relationship emojis, such as families with two mothers and two fathers.
