People have been waiting for Apple to add the option for culturally diverse Emojis for some time now. Here pretty soon, a new software update will finally allow for you to change the skin tone of your emojis.
When this update becomes available you can change the skin tone of any of human emojis by simply clicking & holding on the emoji. It will then pop up a palette with six different skin tones to choose from.
They’ve also added a bunch of new flags, and some other random odds & ends. No official word on release date, but I would expect it in the coming weeks.
