Latest iOS 10 beta adds 100 new emoji

Apple’s latest beta version of iOS 10 includes 100 new emoji, and replaces the revolver pictogram with a water pistol, Ars Technica reported.

The New Yorkers Against Gun Violence group claimed the change as a victory for their campaign after lobbying Apple to have the emoji removed.

The Unicode Consortium usually approves and implements new emoji without much commotion, but depictions of guns have become controversial.

Apple and Microsoft have also lobbied to have a proposed rifle emoji removed from a new round of universal emoji that was released in June.
