Since the introduction of emojis into the Apple keyboard in 2011, the tech company has been expanding its selection, especially in ways to make the images more inclusive. This time, Apple submitted a request to Unicode Consortium, the organization that approves new emojis, thirteen emoji options that help represent people with disabilities. Some of the possible new emojis include a prosthetic arm, a person in a wheelchair, as well as a guide dog. Not since the 2015 update, when Apple introduced the ability to select different skin tones, has there been such an overhaul in the name of representation to the emoji keyboard.
