Rainbow flag and more gender-diverse emoji coming to Apple's iOS10

The iOS 10 beta 4 adds over 100 new emoji to the upcoming mobile operating system.

In iOS 10, Apple is adding new female emojis for runners, cyclists, swimming, builders and more.

It's now been two weeks since iOS beta 3 was released to devs, and so looking at the release cycle, it's a good possibility that iOS 10 beta 4 will be released at some stage later today.

Pakistan was always catching up once Joe Root's double century spurred England to declare at a massive 589-8 in the first innings. He pulled up holding his right calf during his sixth over in Pakistan's second innings and left the field immediately.

Apple is replacing the pistol emoji with a squirt gun emoji, the company announced on Monday. Durex has called for a condom emoji to make conversations about safe sex easier.

Apple's iOS 10 offers a number of new features for users including a redesigned Apple Music, Photos, Messages, and Maps app along with third-party developer support for Siri and more. As it stands today, Apple's sports-related emoji and a majority of its occupational emoji show only men performing activities, which doesn't jibe at all with reality. "Apple is working closely with the Unicode Consortium to ensure that popular emoji characters reflect the diversity of people everywhere". This will include new female athletes and professionals and redesigns of existing characters. At least in the beta 4 seed, only the face emoji have been refreshed with this newer style.
