My personal favorite, Black Santa:
Smiley emoji, sad emoji, hearts emoji, and now, for the first time, racially diverse emoji.
Apple is preparing to release non-white faces in its line-up of the cartoon faces used to liven up text and email messages, news reports said.
In its next update of the icons, the faces will be available in six different skin tones, US media reported late Monday.
Apple said the new inclusion of the faces reflected its commitment to improving diversity.
But by Tuesday, the technology giant was facing criticism that the vibrant shade of yellow chosen for the Asian faces was actually bordering on racist.
“Are we really that yellow?” wrote social media user on Weibo, China’s version of Twitter.
“That yellow is really yellow, how can a man be so yellow?” asked another.
CNN’s website said these are just some of 300 new emojis included in the latest developer version of iOS 8.3.
The new icons won’t be available to the public until the update is released later this year, CNN added.
