As it currently stands, all emoji’s are the same yellow color. Although there are a few slightly different ones such as the an with the mustache, the headdress, and Gua Pi Mao that are all clearly supposed to be represent Hispanic, Middle Eastern, and Asian respectively, there is still a real lack of color among them. Well it looks like that is about to change.
It appears that on OX 10.10.3 there will now be skin tone modifiers to the already existing emoji’s. What does this mean exactly? It means that apple has been listening to a lot of the backlash and many people calling out for more emoji’s that represent themselves. Whether the skin tone options are enough to allow everyone to be accurately represented is another issue, but it’s cool to see them actively trying to address the issue.
