Apple will replace the emoticon depicting a gun
Apple will replace the gun smiley face on a green water gun in the next version of its operating system for iPhone and IPad IOS 10.

Water gun is just one of a number of smileys that will be subject to change, announced the company on Monday. It will also present new and modernized emoticons, which show that women occupy stereotypical male jobs such as detective, construction worker and police officer. There is a new female athletes, the pride flag, as well as options of the family for single parents.

Earlier this year the governing body responsible for the rejected plan emoticons smiley-rifle. It was one of the new additions, but the members of the Unicode consortium Apple and Microsoft spoke out against rifles, according to Buzzfeed.

The gun and other smileys of weapons prompted people in trouble with the law. 12-year-old boy in Virginia has been charged after allegedly threatening the school in Instagram, when used in the message emoticon of a firearm, knife, and bomb. A teenager in Brooklyn has been arrested for posting COP, smilia with a gun pointing to his head. The charges were later dropped.

A French court has ruled that the smiley face depicting the pistol may constitute a deadly threat, and sentenced the man to 3 months in prison for text messages with a smiley face, which was addressed to his former girlfriend.

Last year an organization called "new Yorkers" started a campaign against armed violence and sent an open letter asking Apple to replace its version of the gun with another smiley face. Apple will release IOS 10 this fall.
