The Ireland flag emoji has landed amid a whole load of funny reactions
Apple's all-new range of emojis have been released, much to the delight of almost everybody everywhere in the world.
Apple released iOS 8.3 to the public yesterday, a much-anticipated update that comes with a ton of new features and enhancements. Most notable among the latest features - 300 brand new emojis.
The new range of emoticons finally include racially diverse individuals but some people aren't quite happy about them...

It's a start though, I suppose.
Flags from 32 countries have also been included along with a range of new gadgets like the new Apple Watch.

There is now an Ireland flag emoji, best update ever 🇮🇪— Michael Arnold (@finnabagit) April 9, 2015
The emoji keyboard is included in the iOS 8.3 update launched yesterday and this is you can avail of the changes.
Go to Settings > General > Software Update to download 8.3 or connect your iOS device to your computer and update through iTunes.
Once your software update is complete, the new emojis will appear in the keyboard, replacing your old ones (sad face).
Apart from the odd dejected reaction on social media the feedback has been positive.
