We've known that a new set of diverse/sickly cartoon friends has been on its way for a while now. But thanks to the new iOS 8.3 beta download, that day is finally here. You can officially send your friend a tiny, jaundiced, disembodied head.
To get the slightly less racist set of emojis for your very own, you can head on over to Apple's new-ish Beta Software Program page and get on the list.
Unfortunately, it seems the iOS public beta program is still rolling out, so you may not see the option to hop on board the iOS train right away. Once the option to download iOS 8.3 does grace you, though, in addition to your new set of emojis, you'll also get a chance to check out CarPlay and a supposedly improved Google login.
Since CarPlay is dependent on the car makers jumping on board, though, the most obvious change here will be the new emoji picker.
