We have too many emoji. You could spend your whole life texting everyone in your phone book and still never find an opportunity to use the symbol for Rolodex, a real emoji I bet you didn’t know you had. But for all we have, we also dearly lack: No condom emoji, no pot-leaf emoji, no 78-cents-to-the-dollar emoji.
This fall, Unicode will bless us with several new emoji to meet such needs — with one in particular that covers all emotions. The middle finger is finally coming.
Yes, yes, we are thrilled to see a burrito emoji in the mix, and a cute lion emoji, to boot. But just imagine the people who will now be on the receiving end of the middle-finger emoji in all its cartoony glory. According to Tech Insider, iPhone users will see this update this fall, when Apple releases an update to iOS 9.1. Start brewing a list of deserving recipients in the meantime so you’re ready to fire it off at will.
