    Apple's upcoming software release for iPhone and iPad will feature 100 new and redesigned emojis, including female athletes, single-parent families, a rainbow flag and a water gun to replace the existing revolver.

    Apple's newest software update for iPhone and iPad will feature more than 100 new and redesigned emojis, including more gender options and nontraditional families, NBC News reported. 

    The iOS 10 update, to be released this fall, will add rainbow flags and single-parent families to Apple's emoji repertoire, along with female athletes and working women, the company announced Monday. 

    "Apple is working closely with the Unicode Consortium to ensure that popular emoji characters reflect the diversity of people everywhere," Apple said in a news release posted on its website

    Among the redesigned emojis is the revolver, which will become a squirt gun in iOS 10.
