This week Apple launched its beta update iOS8.3, featuring a redesigned emoji keyboard with ethnically diverse skin tones for your smileys based on the Fitzpatrick scale – a dermatology standard adopted by the Unicode Consortium.

Other changes include same-sex and childless couple icons, plus an extra 300 non-human characters.
