There are also a ton of new emoji focusing on disability, including hearing aids, mechanical arms and legs, wheelchairs, guide dogs and more.

The emoji seen here are part of the Emoji version 12.0 set that was announced a while back. Apple isn’t the first to implement this as Windows 10 and Twitter have included them in their current builds and even Google has added them to the Android 10 beta but those on Apple’s platforms will be glad that they won’t be left waiting for too long.
The new emoji will be available sometime in the fall. You can find the full list of new emoji here.
