Today's iPhone Update Gives You Hundreds of New Emoji

Apr 08, 2015

After some beta tests, Apple has released iOS 8.3, an update that comes with 300 new emojis, a highly-anticipated feature since the tech giant pledged last year to make the popular characters more diverse after users protested.

Notable new emojis in this keyboard — in addition to faces with different skin tones — include same-sex families, a range of gadgets like the new Apple Watch and flags from 32 countries.

The update also boasts bug fixes to CarPlay, the Messages app, WiFi and Bluetooth, among others.
