Emojis we want to swap out of the new iOS

Emojis we want to swap out of the new iOS

With an iOS update comes a token article about how awesome it is.

Which is really freaking awesome.

It’s fixed a few bugs, the News app is a thing now…

…but who really cares about that when there A BUTT-TONE OF NEW EMOJIS OUT!

Everyone is going to have their own favourite (mine personally being the unicorn) but there have been a couple thrown in that we just don’t understand:


What are you? Why are on my phone now?

Writing hand

I have a phone and a keyboard so I don’t have to do that anymore. Actually, the fact it is on my iPhone means it’s even more pointless.


Nobody enjoys fog. Also, that fog is way too square to look normal.

Crème caramel

Yeah we had to google it too. Please, can anybody find us a situation where a picture of a custard jelly thing is necessary?

The black box

We know that Apple is using all of the Unicode shapes, but do they really have to?

Oh and finally... there are toooooooooo many flags.

And to replace them; how about these ones?

Dog variations – There is more than one kind of dog Unicode.

Bacon – This pesky little bugger has been rattling around the rumour mill for a while now but, after a little bit of research, we’ve found out that we aren’t getting bacon until early 2016! We need them!

Avocado – The healthy brother of bacon has been keeping us waiting too!

Orange heart – We have 5 different colours, one more won’t hurt!

Any that we've missed out? Let us know what emojis you'd swap out on our socials!
