iOS 6 Includes Gay And Lesbian Couple Emoji

Now this is nice: Apple has updated their Emoji collection to reflect reality. They’ve added a lesbian and homosexual couple to the usual collection of goofy faces, monkeys, and weird skulls.

The new Emoji will appear in iOS 6 but to access the keyboard now in iOS 5 just pop into “Settings>General>Keyboard” and click International Keyboards. Add a new keyboard and select Emoji. Now, when you type, press the globe button near the keyboard and you’ll see a selection of icons for your perusal.

The company also added some very cute Sanzaru monkeys and, most important, a gust of wind Emoji that I intend to use for a very different purpose.
