    I really like the idea of them coming up with more realistic emojis.

    This article is great! It’s always a gift when apple releases new emojis but I disagree with the statement that these will be useful for it’s a rare occasion that these will actually be used.

    I am glad that Apple has added more diverse emojis, though their uses might be very limited, the fact is that I believe that people wont really use these emojis much even if they are a part of that group. (Just my opinion though)

    Apple is making some really great improvements. The new emojis being made are more diverse and really fantastic that they’re helping/including individuals with disabilities. Which is a big step forward.

    Whenever there is an update and it says Apple will be installing new emojis, I get so elated! I like how diverse and aware they are becoming when adding multiple skin colors, relationships, disabilities, etc. There are some emojis that are considered useless; however, I think they’re still pretty cute and exceptional nonetheless.

    I love that Apple keeps adding emojis, even if they won’t get used a lot. Nice job! 🙂

    Im glad they are adding more inclusive emojis, but I feel like some are odd looking, like the blood and otter.
