It seems like all other colours and creeds have found their way into the emoji keyboard at this point but for some reason it was taking an exorbitant amount of time for our little ginger friends to crop up on it.

These aren’t the only emojis that are being introduced today though, with a grand total of 70 coming to our screens. These include a couple of new hairstyles – for every ethnicity – as well as some cool random stuff like salt shakers, skateboards, teeth, compasses, magnets and crabs. Fantastic – here’s the full list:
