Apple launched the iOS 10.2 software update yesterday, and with it came a whole heap of fresh new emoji including rashers of bacon, a gorilla, and yes, finally, an avocado.
The new iPhone emoji keyboard will also now feature new professions, like teacher, astronaut, scientist, and firefighter, for instance, as well as updated people and facial expressions like a pregnant woman, and a queazy, green smiley depicting illness. Meanwhile, fans of emoji sexting will be pleased to see the peach remains very much butt-like.
One of our early favorites sees a regular smiley given a Pinocchio-like nose to a slightly disturbing effect, but cute ones like an owl, a butterfly and a fox help brighten things up again.
Check out the new emoji above, then here’s how to download and install the update:
1. Back up your iPhone before installing the new software. To do this, navigate to Settings > iCloud > Backup > Back Up Now. You can also connect your iPhone to iTunes on your computer via its charging cable to manually back up your phone.
2.After backing up, open Settings.
3. Tap General.
4. Choose the Software Update option.
