Apple announces new emojis coming this fall

You may not know this, but today is World Emoji Day.

To commemorate, Apple is announcing some brand new emojis coming out this fall in a free software update.

One big upgrade is to the hand-holding emoji, which symbolizes relationships.

Now texters will be able to change the skin tones and gender of the people holding hands.

There are 75 combinations in all.

Apple is also adding some disability-themed emojis.

There’s a guide dog, a visually impaired person holding a cane, and a prosthetic arm.

Of course it wouldn't be an emoji update if there weren’t some new food emojis too.

The newest additions are waffles, ice cubes, garlic, and butter.

Still no chicken wings.

App users can see some of the new emojis here.
