Apple’s emoji family welcomes gay couples

When Apple releases its newest operating system for the iPhone later this year, it will include new emoji – the elaborate kin to emoticons – including same-sex couples.

Gizmodo reports that the new icons for a texter's pictoral alphabet arrive with i0S6, which is due this fall.

The two same-sex couples are believed to be the first gay emoji. They probably will be more useful than the twin tap dancers and the top hat, but not as commonly used as the happy face.
