No, you do not get to send your friends the middle finger emoji today.

Apple’s iOS update to version 9.1 includes a bunch of new, highly anticipated emoji sure to cause a surge in use for the expressive icons. There’s the middle finger, of course, but the update will also include tacos, a hockey stick, a synagogue, and more. That emoji-rich update lands on smartphone screens in November.

Perhaps confusingly, Apple’s update to iOS version 9.0 went live today. It contains no new emojis, much to the chagrin of soon-to-be-disappointed iPhone fans.

These users and more are going to be confused upon updating their phones today—the feature they really want is still a month away. Apple has yet to set a formal release date for iOS 9.1, but we’re hoping it might hit sooner than its anticipated November release date.
