Images of policewomen, female detectives and women wearing hard-hats are finally illustrating the real world.


Among the new icons available in iOS 10, users can select a policewoman, a female detective, a woman wearing a hard-hat and female basketball players, surfers or cyclists.

It’s a refreshing change from the depressingly stereotypical depictions of women in emoji land, which include princesses, brides and women dancing or getting their hair cut.

The new iOS 10 update also includes emojis for single-parent families, men dancing in bunny outfits and the rainbow flag.
