These Are Apple’s New, Diverse Emoji

Apple has today delivered a new beta of OS X to developers that comes with a major new feature: diverse emoji.

A tipster sent in these screenshots of the new emoji palette found in OS X 10.10.3. … click and hold on any emoji to change the skin tone. The same emoji are appearing in iOS 8.3 beta 2 as well.



Kudos to Apple.


However, the yellow skin looks ridiculous. No one actually has yellow skin like that.

My prediction, in their next revision they will let you change the hair color. Then in the next revision after that they will let you change the hair texture.

Thank you to @LatinaLista for the news article.
