The New iOS Is Giving Us A David Bowie Emoji!


David Bowie may have sadly passed, but his spirit will live on inside of our iPhones. The singer will be among the emojis that are going to be added in iOS 10.2.

The David Bowie emoji will be available in both genders (as you know, Bowie often rocked an androgynous look, and what is gender anyway?). The emojis will feature the iconic lightning bolt across the cheek as shown on Bowie’s sixth studio album, Aladdin Sane. 

Bowie’s emoji is part of a large roll out that includes a bunch of new professions like astronaut and chef. Let’s be real though, if there’s anything we want to be when we grow up it’s David Bowie. 

iOS 10.2 will also remedy the problem how difficult it is to type the classic emoticon shrug, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. There will officially be a shoulder shrug emoji, though we’ve got to say we still like the crooked smile of the old-school version. There’s something incredibly goofy about it that an emoji loses.

What do you think of the new emojis?
