Check Out 13 New Disability Inclusive Emojis Apple Wants To Release

Emojis are an important part of the way we communicate digitally and Apple is stepping up to the plate. The company just submitted their proposal for a list of disability-inclusive emojis to the Unicode Consortium. 

The collection includes an ear with a hearing aid, a guide dog with a harness, the def sign, a person with a cane, a prosthetic arm and leg, a person in a wheelchair and more. The human emojis have been introduced in two sexes and a variety of skin tones, totaling 45 new emojis. 

Emojipedia took to Twitter and Instagram to make the announcement.

๐Ÿ†• ๐Ÿ“ฒ New: Apple has submitted a proposal to Unicode for accessibility emojis including people in wheelchairs, service dogs, and prosthetic limbs. If approved, they'll be on phones next year #emoji #emojis #accessibility #apple #iphone #emojipedia

In the opening paragraph of the proposal, Apple writes:

โ€œApple is requesting the addition of emoji to better represent individuals with disabilities. Currently, emoji provide a wide range of options, but may not represent the experiences of those with disabilitiesโ€

Per the Unicode.org blog, 2018 will also bring us redheaded human emojis, a cupcake, a peacock, superheroes (male + female) and more!
