When it comes to negative publicity, the iPhone 11 already has its fair share even if Apple’s new smartphone is yet to be launched. 

Despite some rumored excellent features, the iPhone 11, which is expected to launch this September, has been overshadowed by opinions of the smartphone’s “ugly” camera hump at the back. The square hump, which looks as large as the phone’s Apple logo, will house the otherwise sophisticated triple-camera module of the new phone. 

It also doesn’t matter that the iPhone 11 could also have a breakthrough logic board setup, which basically means the next phone’s battery life could significantly improve. Per analysis of writers such as Forbes’ Gordon Kelly, it is actually better to hold off purchasing a new iPhone this year and just wait for 2020 when better iPhones are expected to make a splash. 

Needless to say, there’s nothing that could probably make the market excited for Apple’s next flagship phones. There are some interesting updates, however, including the addition of new emojis courtesy of the iOS 13 update, which is expected to launch along with the iPhone 11. 

Per TechRadar, the Cupertino giant has unveiled a new set of emojis geared towards diversity and it includes some interesting additions to Apple’s excellent emoji lineup. Included in the diversity-themed emojis are bi-racial couples that represent the LGBTQ community. It also includes some fun icons that represent people with disabilities (PWD), one of which being a really cool emoji of what looks like a bionic leg. 

These interesting and empowering emojis were created early this year by Unicode as part of Apple’s goal to celebrate diversity and recognize the plight of people with disability. The Cupertino firm announced that the new emojis will drop in the fall of this year in time for the World Emoji Day. 

Apple has announced a "fall" launch date for Emoji 12.0 on Apple devices that includes the aforesaid emojis. Aside from the iPhone 11, the new emojis are also expected to be available not only on iOS devices but also in iPadOS, macOS and watchOS products.
