Disability-themed emojis will be the biggest addition to this year’s new batch of approved emojis.
The new accessibility emojis were introduced after Apple proposed adding emojis of a guide dog, a hearing aid, prosthetic limbs and people using canes and in wheelchairs back in 2018.
Apple had criticised the lack of representation of people with disabilities.
The proposal was validated by the Unicode consortium, which distributes emojis across mobile devices.
A total of 59 new emojis were approved in the recent update to the official list found on emojipedia.
