On Monday, Apple released iOS 13.2 update, the star of which is arguably all of the fancy new camera features included within. But the update also includes 60 new emoji. New emoji include gender-neutral characters, interracial couples, and characters with disabilities. And yes, iOS 13.2 also includes — the otter. Most importantly, you can now slap a cute, little chubby-faced otter into every single one of your conversations.
Naturally, the internet is going nuts over this cute little guy.

The adorable little emoji was also giving non-apple users major emoji envy.

That is all.
