iOS 10 is what you make of it.

Apple isn't exactly known to embrace NSFW content hitting its mobile devices. For the company's latest iOS update, it may have offered a GIF keyboard but also censored search options. One thing was overlooked, however: butts. That's how a GIF of a My Little Pony character pulling down its panties made its way to iPhones everywhere.

Deadspin's the Concourse was the first to pick up the news that searching "butt" yielded some risqué results. Forget the fact that Fluttershy doesn't have opposable thumbs or that actual ponies really can't bend that way. The GIF keyboard, supposedly powered by Bing, nonetheless provided a true representation of the internet with its offerings.

Here's Mashable's edited version of the cartoon erotica:

Within less than 24 hours, the fun was over for furry-loving smut fans. According to the Verge, Apple banned the search term "butts," though it still autocompletes popular searches like "dick pics." Knowing what people really want and denying it to them at the same time is truly the company's ethos. Just look at its stupid headphone jack-free new phones.

There is hope for folks seeking a quick release and a rapid-fire way to send filthy fucking GIFs, however. Behold, this excerpt from the iOS Guides and Sample Code for iOS 10:

So long as you know how to skirt the limited search terms available, your public photos and GIFs could end up in a message. Hell, you can even easily make your own sticker packs "without writing any code"—so says Apple. "Simply drag images into the Sticker Pack folder inside the Stickers asset catalog in Xcode."

Apple may squash your search terms, but it'll never kill your will to disseminate porn. I bet you eggplant's not been banned yet, if you know what I mean. Have at it.
