Apple announced its next emoji update will include more diversity, according to a statement released Monday.

The company stated its iOS 10 update will include more than 100 new emojis, with specific emphasis on the inclusion of "female athletes and professionals."

A sneak peak at the new emojis included female cyclists, swimmers and runners of varying skin tones.

Also included in the update were more accurate representations of non-traditional families (i.e. single-parent households) and, by popular demand, a gay pride flag.

iOS 10 is expected to be released in the fall.
