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:

Although it’s supposed to be a generic gorilla, it’s unlikely the association with Harambe will go away anytime soon.
