THE New iPhone Emoji Selection: How Did We Live Without It?

THE New iPhone Emoji Selection: How Did We Live Without It?

It’s the update we’ve all be waiting for…

The emoji has become commonplace in pretty much every social update we do; a Facebook holiday status without the sunshine and cocktail alongside it is like a handbag without a matching purse. A puppy snap just isn’t as cute without it’s on-screen friend, and how do you give your bezzy the first date lowdown without the embarrassed face or hands-over-eyes monkey icon?

We’ve definitely all had a moment where we think, damn, why isn’t there an emoji for this? It seems like Apple has listened to our wishes, releasing a selection of over 150 new emoji in the latest iOS 9.1 update.

Here’s our top 5 faves:

The cheese wedge – why has it taken until now?! Brie, Camembert, Cheddar, Mozzarella, Feta…we could go on and on, cheese is just so mouthwateringly good!

The middle finger – an ex-boyfriend won’t get off your case? Drunk parents asking for a lift home when you’re snuggled up in front of a Kardashian’s episode? Sometimes you can’t even bring yourself to waste time on typing out a sentence…

The unicorn head – we all wish unicorns existed after watching Fantasia and Toy Story 3

The burrito – the BEST lunchtime snack

The Champagne bottle – the perfect symbol for any celebratory bash; who doesn’t love a glass, or should we say a bottle, of Champagne?

Here’s how to get in on the action...

Simply grab your iPhone, go to settings > general > software update and click download and install!
