The days of the cute peach “backside” emoji are over.
Apple’s 10.2 update has bestowed upon smartphone users a shrugging emoji and a face-palm emoji, but the company is removing the old peach emoji. The new replacement no longer looks like a tiny cartoon bum.
With the new iOS, users get complete access to Unicode 9.0 and a whole new suite of emojis, which includes an avocado and a series of new professions like an astronaut, lawyer and artist for both men and women (of all skin tones!).
