“Apple is requesting the addition of emoji to better represent individuals with disabilities. Currently, emoji provide a wide range of options, but may not represent the experiences of those with disabilities,” The company wrote in the proposal.

“Diversifying the options available helps fill a significant gap and provides a more inclusive experience for all,” the Cupertino-headquartered giant added.
