Apple is about to get all politically correct with the new iOS 10 features coming this Fall.
They got a lot of crap for having only one skin color for their guy/girl and “thumbs up” emojis, so they changed it. Now? Things are about to get even less “offensive.” Like, we’re talking female weightlifters and rainbow flags. And squirt guns, and no more real guns.
Yeah. Apple is 86’ing the pistol emoji and replacing it with THIS.
Yeah, “Thank you, Apple, for replacing the pistol emoji with a squirt gun instead. Thanks to you, the nation’s gun violence is at an all-time low.” Said nobody ever.
Apple doesn’t have much of an explanation behind the decision other than “ensuring that popular emoji characters reflect the diversity of people everywhere.”
