Apple are celebrating same-sex marriage in their latest iPhone X advert.

The company’s advert champions marriage equality and the touching new commercial celebrates love in all forms.

iPhone’s First Dance

The advert, titled First Dance, has been released to the Australian market where same-sex marriage was made legal last December.

AS CNET reports, the advert – shot entirely on the iPhone X – captured the first ceremonies in the country.

The ABS was put in charge of running the AU$122 million (US$93 million) postal survey when it was announced in September. The results were read out in November by Australia Statistician, David W. Kalisch, from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).

More than 61% of people voted in favor of changing the law to allow same-sex couples to marry, while 38.4% voted against.

The advert follows Apple’s addition of ‘gender neutral emojis’ to its iOS platform in October last year.

The technology giant announced hundreds of new emojis, available on its 11.1 update.

The new emojis included more emotive smiley faces, gender-neutral characters, clothing options, food types, animals and mythical creatures.

Apple could be fined for including gay friendly emojis in its most recent update

Apple was threatened with a fine by Russia for including gay friendly emojis in an update last year

The update also featured characters launched on World Emoji Day.

These included: Woman with Headscarf, Bearded Person, Breastfeeding and Zombie.

Also included in the update was the Love-You Gesture, designed after the ‘I love you’ hand sign in American Sign Language.

The multi-billion-dollar California company is not only pushing boundaries of science, but also of equality among people. It is headed by the most high-profile, openly gay CEO in the world: Tim Cook.

The tech company also featured a loved-up gay couple for its iPhone 7 launch in 2016.
