  • FRIENDLIER EMOJIS? Apple Gets Rid Of Gun Emoji In Favor Squirt Gun

    Thank goodness Apple is here to save the day by getting rid of that violent looking gun emoji!

    Fortune is reporting:

    A bunch of messages are about to become a lot less threatening.

    Apple is bringing in a bunch of new emoji in the upcoming iOS 10 this fall. Not only will they be more gender-diverse—a change recently agreed by the industry-led Unicode Consortium—but one emoji will be notably less violent.

    As the debate over gun control rages on, Apple’s gun emoji, currently representing a real pistol, will in future be a green and orange water pistol.

    The change is not coming with much explanation, though—the toy is simply on the list of new emoji alongside the female weightlifter and the rainbow flag.

    What a joke.
