Whoa! Your favorite emojis are getting a makeover

Whoa! Your favorite emojis are getting a makeover
The Next Web

You might have heard a little something about the upcoming Apple event in the fall. We're expecting a new iPhone, maybe a new iPad, and iOS 10. While we aren't exactly sure what's coming with the new hardware, we do know what's coming with the new operating system, iOS 10, and that's 100 new emojis.

Better yet, Apple announced in a press release that among the new emojis will be more inclusive varieties to more types of people. New female athletes will be added and more skin colors will be added to "reflect the diversity of people everywhere."

For starters, women will now be added to athletic emojis, including a swimmer, a runner, a biker, a weightlifter and basketball player. The detective and construction worker emojis can now also be women.

The family dynamic is getting a makeover too. Family emojis will now include a single mother and a single father.

On the more controversial side, some are upset that Apple is replacing the gun emoji with a water gun, and has even added a rainbow flag.

See what the emojis look like below:
