Apple has rolled out its iOS 8.3 update, which comes with 300 new emojis for our texting pleasure.
The new batch includes flags from 32 new countries and same-sex families with two mothers and two fathers. But the update that has everyone buzzing are the different faces featuring a total of six skin tones. They default as yellow, but when you tap on one, five additional skin shades pop up for you to choose from. So now you can even make Santa have any skin tone you want!
