We’re in the home stretch of Apple’s next major hardware event. It’s usually at that event that we see major changes to the company’s software platforms take place.
It’s just as well that we’re once again ramping up another set of software betas for developers, the fourth so far, for iOS 10, macOS 10.12 Sierra, tvOS 10 and watchOS 3.
The biggest change for iOS 10 this round, as evidenced by an Apple press release, is the inclusion of more than 100 new and redesigned emoji, the bulk of which are new from the Unicode 9 standard. Tweaks include more gender variants of occupational emoji, expanded family depictions as well as a brightened up rainbow flag for LGBT+ pride.
If you’re on the developer beta 3, check your software updates.
