Apple’s iOS 14.2 release came with a fun surprise in the form of more than 100 new emojis.

Among the latest additions to the ever-growing range of options not only include a transgender pride flag, children’s toys, delightful food, cute animals, and playful faces but also a gender-inclusive Santa/Mrs. Claus emoticon that can easily amp up the most wonderful time of the year.

TechCrunch additionally reported that the latest software update highlights an accessibility feature specifically for the blind who have an iPhone 12 Pro or Pro Max. “Thanks to the built-in lidar sensor, you can use your iPhone to detect the presence of and distance to people in the view of the iPhone’s camera,” they explained.

It also has new minor functions, “such as new wallpapers, headphone audio level notifications when the volume is too high and redesigned controls for AirPlay.”
