Moving towards the inclusion of all people, Apple recently proposed a new set of accessibility emojis to the Unicode Consortium.

The 13 new emojis were created in collaboration with the American Council of the Blind, the Cerebral Palsy Foundation, and the National Association of the Deaf to better represent individuals with disabilities. Apple did note that the new set still does not represent everyone, but serves as a positive move forward. If the Unicode Consortium green lights the accessibility emojis, they will be available on iPhones, Android, and computers in the later half of 2019.

Check out Apple’s proposed accessibility emojis above and let us know what you think about the positive move to represent all people.

For more tech news, Apple could be planning to develop a foldable iPhone to launch in 2020.
