In a statement released Monday, the company announced that its iOS 10 update will include more than 100 new emojis, with specific emphasis on the inclusion of "female athletes and professionals."
A sneak peak at the new emojis included female cyclists, swimmers and runners of varying skin tones.
Also included in the update are more accurate representations of non-traditional families (i.e. single-parent households) and, by popular demand, a gay pride flag.
iOS 10 is expected to be released this fall.
