As of yesterday (October 21, 2015), Apple officially released iOS 9.1, and with it 150 new emoji (emojis? emojii?). These aren’t just your normal new emoji characters, though. This update includes a middle finger emoji along with a cheese wedge, a burrito, a champagne bottle, a unicorn, different faces, and many more. Not only that, but you can change the skin color of the middle finger emoji (along with some of the other hand emojis), so now you can give anyone you’d like the middle finger no matter what color skin you have.
