On Wednesday Oct. 22, Apple released its latest update to the iOS operating system. In addition to a bunch of technical mumbo-jumbo, they updated one of our iPhone's most precious commodities: its emojis.
Now, folks with the update can text new emojis of food, smiley expressions, animals and more. Here are a few of the highlights:
Smileys and Faces
The taco emoji was wanted so badly that a Change.org petition was started for it that garnered 32,802 signatures. Now that it, a burrito, hot dogs, champagne and a delightfully orangey block of cheese have joined all those fruit and veggie emojis, perhaps they can turn their attention to petitioning for a Sriracha emoji.
The Middle Finger
This goes without saying, but we'll say it anyway: Thank you Apple! We all need this emoji for instances too numerous to count ... but we won't get into them here.
