Usually an Apple software update is a slight annoyance – you have to make sure your phone is charged, you have to delete thousands of photos in order to make space, your phone turns off for a good ten minutes. It's not ideal. But the prospect of new emojis? Sign us up.
The iOS 8.3 update comes with 300 new emojis, a highly anticipated feature since the tech giant pledged last year to make the popular characters more diverse after users protested. Notably the emojis now have the options of different skin tones, there are same sex families and a few more animals to decorate your instagram pics with.
However we have noticed that Apple left a few key emojis out (in our humble opinion):
Dollar bills flying from the hand emoji (aka raining money emoji)
The pug emoji (as opposed to the rat emoji)
Treacle pudding emoji (instead of…what we think is crème caramel)
Curling emoji – should definitely make it onto the sports list
Fireman emoji (instead of cub scout emoji, our emojis are real men)
Word of warning: you might start texting in just emojis.
