There’s been some grumbling about the lack of black emojis.

There’s been some grumbling about the lack of black emojis – the tiny cartoon people on your smart phone – on Apple products, but following the next update the emoji population will finally become more diverse.

The new smiley and frowny faces will be just some of the 300 new emojis included in the latest developer version of iOS 8.3.

According to The Next Web, there’s still no release date for the new emoji features, but Apple is reportedly planning a public beta program to kick off in mid-March.

Last April, Mauritius-based app company Oju Africa launched a range of 65 “Afro Emoticons.” At the time of their release, Oju (Yoruba for “face”) touted their afrocentric emojis as the first ethnically diverse emoticons.
