No worries Apple, you got all you need to express your feelings with the new update of Apple`s new operating system update, the iOS 8.3.
Over 300 emojis have been introduced to iOS 8.3 in the latest update of the operating system by Apple. You might say this is no big news, but, actually, it represents an important change in the way emojis have been designed until now, at a big scale like Apple emojis represent. The diverse emojis are a significant contribution to the way our world evolves, embracing differences and pointing out the real fundamental part of our race: not the difference in our skin color, sexual orientation or beliefs, but the genuine hope for happiness and for the means to express ourselves.
The new pack of emojis include smiley faces which are not just yellow, or white, or pink, but any color, being linked to the several major skin colors, complexions and appearances that are characteristic to the human race. It is an important message, even if it is not an absolute decision or a categorical transformation of our world into a better place. But it is another clear message against racism and archaic unwritten laws which no longer satisfy the needs of the world we live in and that we are trying everyday to create.
Another significant add to the new emojis pack, and this time even more surpising, may be the same sex couple emojis. The emoticons picture families with parents of same sex, who have one or more children. It is an important aspect, that a company so well known and influential as Apple Inc includes emojis of gay parents. Apple launches another message against homophobia and in support of the rights of homosexual people. Recently, Tim Cook, the chief executive officer of Apple Inc. has made it clear in a statement that he is gay and that he reckons homosexuality as one of the biggest gifts that God offered him.
Other emojis include the Union Jack, bunny eared women and the middle finger extended on a reverse hand.
An interesting feature of the new emojis pack is the Vulcan salute, also known as the Spock emoticon, released in the memory of Leonard Nimoy, who passed away this year, on February 27. In order to unlock this rare emoticon iPhone or iPad users are required to apply a special trick.
