Apple has unveiled a new set of emojis that include a diverse set of new characters participating in sports and other activities. These characters are both gender and racially diverse.

A new rainbow flag emoji has also been added in support of the LGBT community.

Perhaps the most controversial change comes by way of the gun emoji, which has long been represented as a revolver. It is being replaced with a water pistol, a move that Apple hopes both curves the growing gun issue in the United States without upsetting too many gun enthusiasts.
