iPhone users will soon lose the pistol emoji.

Apple announced Monday it will replace it with a water gun.

The change comes after an anti-gun violence organization started a campaign to get Apple to scrap the gun.

It's one of more than 100 new and redesigned symbols coming this fall with the iOS 10 update.
