Apple Announces Disability-Themed Emojis In an effort to promote diversity, Apple is adding disability-focused emojis to their collection. The new characters were announced to coincide with World Emoji Day. Users can expect to see a guide dog, wheelchairs, prosthetic limbs and more. Apple submitted a proposal to include disability-themed emojis to the Unicode Consortium in March 2018. The tech giant notes that the new additions are not comprehensive of all disabilities, but will act as a starting point.
