To mark this year’s World Emoji Day, Apple has previewed a range of new emojis that will be arriving on iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple Watch this fall. A number of the new emojis have been designed to be more inclusive. A stand-out theme of the new release is the update to the “Holding Hands” emoji, which is customizable to select any combination of skin tone and gender, creating more than 75 possible combinations.

Additionally, Apple will release a selection of disability-themed emojis. These new options including a guide dog, an ear with a hearing aid, wheelchairs and prosthetics. These emojis were initially revealed over a year ago, when Apple proposed them to the Unicode Consortium.

Alongside Apple’s focus on diversity and inclusion, a number of emojis have been added to other categories. This includes a new take on the classic smiley (yawning), new clothing items (including a one-piece swimsuit) and new instruments (a banjo). There are also new food items — waffle, butter, garlic and falafel — and the sloth, flamingo, orangutan and skunk have joined the animal options.

Take a first look at some of the 59 emojis that will arrive this Fall in the gallery above.

In related news, there is a new archive of every Apple ad since the 1970s.
