Comprised of 60 different designs, many of the emoji will focus on inclusion and diversity such as interracial couples and gender-neutral characters. What’s more is users will also be able to select multiple skin tones in group characters, such as couples and families.
The update also includes disability-themed emoji options, including a seeing eye dog, characters in wheelchairs and prosthetic limbs. Additionally emoji that are sure to be a hit include a waffle, butter, an otter, a sloth, an ice cube, and a yawning smiley face.
Aside from the emoji, the iOS 13.2 update also adds a “deep fusion” camera mode to the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro — a tool that uses artificial intelligence to improve image quality. It also features optional Siri recording, allowing users to better control whether to share audio recordings with Apple developers.
