    It may not seem like much, but it’s steps like this that further our cause and contribute to the normality of homosexual relationships. Well done Apple, I’ll be considering an iPhone the next time I upgrade!

    1. Yes, you are right. It’s small almost subliminal gestures like this that are so helpful in combating bigotry.

    Aw the little gay couple look cute too !

    1. Adorable! :)

  3. Aww sweet ;)

  4. This small new pleases me greatly! Good on you Apple!

  5. devils advocate but “what no blacks?”

    1. No Asians either. And so what?

      1. how about dispelling the myths that “homosexuality is a white person problem” or a “western problem” as so many leaders of 3rd world countries have insisted recently?

  6. A VERY rare show of support for gay people by Apple. Google is way ahead of you on this kind of thing.

    Excellent. I must immediately show my approval by purchasing one of those new high-def laptops. I’m sure my husband will understand I’m only furthering the cause of equality :-D

  8. It’s sad that this is news, instead of old news. Still, I’m hapy.

  9. Apple is slow at everything, even doing what should have been done a long time ago. Now let’s make the icons bigger to, they are too small

  10. So cute! Just please if you add children, don’t get rid of the childless couples, I can’t stand children haha. I think a variety of ethnicties would be nice too :)

  11. If the expend the idea, I wonder what the priest with kids icon will; be doing?

    *shudder*

  12. Just awesome. Can’t wait until I get my updates

  13. And cue One Million Moms boycott of Apple.

      Great. Hopefully they’re also boycotting Microsoft because of their support for marriage equality in Washington state.

      Which means we only need the Linux Foundation to fall in line and One Million Moms will be offline for good!!! :-D
