Apple has released its latest software update for iPhone users which includes a more diverse set of emoji.

In an effort to better represent society, Apple has revealed a new set of globally diverse emoji that come in six different skin tones. The tones include an option that turns a character yellow - a shade that the the Cupertino-based company said it intended to be ethnically neutral

HISTORY OF EMOJI

Emoji were originally popular in Japan, and widely used online.

However, in recent years they have become hugely popular elsewhere.

Japanese electronic messages and webpages, whose use is spreading outside Japan. Originally meaning pictograph, the word emoji literally means "picture" (e) + "letter" (moji).

Icons are standardised, and include some specific to Japanese culture, such as a bowing (apologising) businessman, a face wearing a face mask, a white flower used to denote 'brilliant homework' or a group of emoji representing popular foods: ramen noodles, dango, onigiri, Japanese curry, and sushi.

Some emoji character sets have been incorporated into Unicode, allowing them to be used elsewhere in the world - and more could noww be added.

The update also includes dozens of other updates, including an update to the iCloud Photo Library has been optimized to work with the new Photos app on OS X 10.10.3.

It also includes new languages for Siri, improved performance and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth fixes, orientation and rotation fixes, and others fixes in Messages, Family Sharing, CarPlay, Enterprise and Accessibility.

Apple has also released the final version of OS X 10.10.3, the latest major update for OS X Yosemite. 

It includes the new Photos app, an OS X version of the photo viewing and editing app included with iOS. 

It is a replacement for iPhoto, the basic photo app included with the iLife suite for years before becoming available for free for all new Macs.

The new emoji tones include an option that turns a character yellow - a shade that the Cupertino-based company says it intended to be ethnically neutral.

But the colour has angered some Apple users, particularly those in China, who claim that the yellow tone is offensive to Asians. 

Earlier in the year when the plans were announced, some users took to Twitter to voice their concerns with one user, Jade Tran, writing: 'Is the yellow emoji suppose to represent Asians because I have never in my life seen an Asian looking like that.'
