When will this end? Kevin Webb offers no hope:
Emojipedia reports that iOS 13.2 has added 398 new emoji designs to Apple devices, which includes new skin color variations, gender options, and updates to old symbols. There are 61 brand-new emoji codes that were announced by Unicode in March.
Oh the humanity!
Many of this year’s new emoji are focused on inclusivity, with symbols for deaf and blind people, prosthetic limbs, and wheelchairs. A bunch of old emoji have also been updated to have gender-neutral options, rather than being specific to a man or women. Emoji that contain multiple people will now let you choose the skin color of each person, too.
Because why? How about a name to match the icon so we know what they are. I figured out on my own that eggplant has multiple uses.
