iPhone Developers got the beta versions of Apple’s new iOS 8.3 and OS X 10.10.3 operating system updates and they contain something many users have been waiting for: emojis with different skin tone options.
Word leaked on Monday afternoon that in the new operating systems you’ll be able to tap and hold an emoji to see a selection of several skin tones to choose from.
The male and female faces, as well as thumbs up/thumbs down icons, will be available in the different colors. Other people emoji, such as princesses and construction workers, will also get more diverse options. Tapping and holding on an emoji person will bring up the new skin-tone variations.
In addition to the new skin tones, the selection of country flags has expanded, according to TheNextWeb.
