iOS 8.3 is here, and while it comes with a handful of updates, the most exciting is new emoji. Duh.

When the beta of the new OS X hit developers hands back in February, we were given a preview at all the new, racially diverse emoji coming to your Apple devices. Now, with today's release of OX X Yosemite 10.10.3 and iOS 8.3, the new characters are ready for action.

Your redesigned emoji keyboard features over 300 new characters.

Among the other fixes shipping with iOS 8.3 include the ability to filter out iMessages not sent by your contacts, additional language support for Siri, some swipe to unlock glitches, and many, many more. In fact, it's a giant changelog.

But I know you're just concerned with the new emoji. It's ok, you can admit it.
