One of the world's leading technology powerhouses has come up with yet another way to enhance our interface with tech. Apple’s newest IOS update has consumers raving about its new tech specs. With interactive text animation, a new game station, and even a new keyboard sound, the update has every iPhone user satisfied thus far. Not too long ago we were blessed with inclusive color correct people emojis to represent the diverse population of tech users. Then came the inclusion and diversity of the family emojis, And now Apple has added a new addition to the emoji family, single parent emojis.
Yes, now single parent families can accurately represent themselves in animated short hand. Including both single mothers and fathers of one or two children Apple has taken care to listen to consumer feedback and accommodate users. While the families do not include varying skin color options, we are definitely moving in the right direction. After all, what would the next gen IOS include? along with added family icons the IOS 10 emoji keyboard also includes masculine and feminine athletic depictions, dancers and kissy faces.other emojis that also got an update include the the green toy gun which took the place of the realistic pistol once in the catalog, and more flags.
It's refreshing to have inclusionary tech at fingers reach when the world is screaming for exclusion. Hats off to apple for their efforts toward inclusion and unity through technology. We have a ways to go, but progress is progress.
