We're pleased to report than in addition to the cute animals that we come to expect from new iOS rollouts, Apple has also added some new disability emojis. Apple's new emojis will arrive on iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple Watch later this year while Google's new emojis will be available on Android Q. Both companies are bringing around 60 new emojis this year. The Subcommittee actually calls the small penis emoji "pinching hands" representing "small amount" but they can't easily fool us. You'll be able to press-and-hold your emoji of choice and select a "male" or "female" presentation if you wish.

Last year's emojis were released in iOS 12.1, and it's expected that this year's will follow in a similar timeline.

Apple and Google are giving a facelift to their handholding couple Emojis so that your Emoji people can hold hands with whomever you please, regardless of gender or skin tone.

In total, the company says 59 new emoji and 75 gender variations will debut as a part of iOS 13, iPadOS 13, and macOS Catalina this fall.

Here’s How Elon Musk Will Connect Your Brain With Computers
Musk cautioned that it "will take a long time" to achieve the merger of brain and machine. "The monkey's going to come out of the bag", Musk said, half-jokingly.

This update will feature emojis including a guide dog, an ear with a hearing aid and a wheelchair. Google said its emojis will be released with Android Q later this year.

Tomorrow is World Emoji Day and here to celebrate are Google and Apple with previews of their own versions of the new emoji. Sure, you do! Get excited about new sloth, skunk, orangutan, and flamingo emoji, too.

Also, Google explains emojis that don't have a specific gender will be "gender ambiguous" by default, as reported by TechCrunch.
