Apple Inc.(NASDAQ:AAPL) is replacing the pistol emoji with a water pistol in its next software update, which traditionally comes with a refresh of the little keyboard symbols.

This move came amid increasing fears about gun violence in the US and across the world, Apple has chosen to replace the pistol with a bright colored water pistol.

The change arrive after a wave of mass shootings in the US and Europe, which have left masses of people killed and injured in Dallas, Orlando and Munich, among others.

Recently alsoApple Inc.(NASDAQ:AAPL) took united decision to introduce a new rifle emoji to the catalogue of Olympic symbols. The Unicode Consortium, which is responsible for regulating emoji, described the veto as “bizarre and unusual”.

The pistol emoji is a standard symbol of violence. Recently, a man was sentenced to three months in prison for threatening his ex-girlfriend with the pistol symbol in France. And a recent campaign in the US called on Apple to “Disarm the iPhone” by getting rid of the pistol.

“Many Americans unknowingly carry a gun with them every day,” said the campaign. “We ask that you stand with the American people and remove the gun emoji from all your products as a symbolic gesture to limit gun accessibility.”

Apple comprised the pistol emoji in its iOS keyboard since 2010, but both the gun and knife symbols aren’t accessible in mac OS.

Apple Inc (AAPL) didn’t comment on whether the water pistol is replacing the pistol emoji. But there is only one category for pistols in the Unicode Consortium’s catalogue.

This new water pistol is being included to Apple’s pack of emoji along with a dozen “more gender diverse” characters, including single parent families, female sports characters, and the LGBT rainbow flag.

The latest’s symbols will be accessible along with more than 100 restructured characters in iOS 10, which is set to be unleased in September with the iPhone 7.
