I'm so glad Apple is finally adding these emojis! My father has been in a wheelchair for years, my brother uses a hearing aid, and I work at a guide dog training center - these new emojis feel very relevant and I'll definitely be using them 👍
Anonymous, 25 Mar 2018Hmm, i wounder how the late S. Hawking expressed his emotions... Synthesizer and text, no emoji.Fact is they released these emojis after he passed out. Probably since they knew he would be offended by that.
The thing that makes me more angry about this is that they think they can summarize a disability like these just with a small picture. No, a small icon cannot tell the world of sufferings and misunderstanding these people get.
- You still (person in wheelchair emoji)?
Yes it is truly offensive. By chance, how do you send these emojis to our friends with disabilities without insulting their current state? Surely, kids will use this feature as a meme or an insult to their peers. What a stupid move by Apple and should be remove from the list of emojis.
.. rather use the energy to improve other stuff.
Like more control center options..
Like mobile data limit cut off..
Man.. apple rotten.

I bet you all those blind people where just dying to use these emojis they can't see (about them not seeing things). Don't call them Apple Geniusee for nothing
What about "i have a fat ass emoji" it is also disabilities.

I think that the Prosthetic Arm and Leg should also be able to be in plastic or wood not just metals.
Sorry for disabled ones, they been so far completely fine without impersonating them into some stupid tiny picture, but no, thanks to Apple they going to be involved in this nonsense cliche so everybody can send you those stupid emoji to pretend they are disabled or just to remind you every time what you are? Pathetic
Ohh, for this they deserve a well done and keep it up!
useless emojis for kids
Wish there was a period emoji.

Meanwhile iIS devices still don't support USB-C, iPad is powerful but a toy. No new Mac Mini, no Mac Pro with BYOM(onitor), no pen operated iPhone like Galaxy Note. iTunes still a nightmare. Etc.
just wondering how the blind will use these emojis.
Isn't it a bit early for April fools...
What is the world coming to?? All precious little buttercups... But of course the seeing eye dog emoji is a must..
Another step towards emoji becoming the universal language XD
I'm just wondering why is this news worthy. *poop emoji*
