You can now properly facepalm, too.
Apple is no stranger to creating an uproar with its emoji updates—remember the whole water pistol incident?—and in a new developer beta release of iOS 10.2, the next wave of emoji will finally see the light of day.
On the all-new emoji front there are some pretty interesting additions, such as this handsome fella here:
There’s also a new fox, avocado, and owl emoji:
In fact, there’s lots of new animals in iOS 10.2:
But it’s not just new emoji that are coming; lots of existing emoji are getting new looks. Among the newly refreshed emoji are an updated shrug:
And new professions for male and female emoji:
All of these additions are great, but there’s one tweak that might totally put a damper on your sexting habits. It seems Apple has had enough of the “peach butt” and decided to redesign everyone’s favorite fruit emoji to something much less suggestive:
There’s no official release date for iOS 10.2 as of yet, but it should be just around the corner.
Update 10:03am CT, Dec. 13: Apple released the newest iOS update this morning, and the gorilla emoji is among the many new emoji available to users.
Although it’s supposed to be a generic gorilla, it’s unlikely the association with Harambe will go away anytime soon.
“There’s a harambe emoji” “yeah it’s called a gorilla….”
