A David Bowie Emoji is Coming

The next iOS update (10.2) will introduce a bunch of new emoji—including, finally, an avocado. Along with the all-important fruit, there will be more animals (rhino, shrimp, shark and more), food (pancakes, bacon, baguette and more) as well as more sports emoji. Perhaps most exciting, and sweet, is the inclusion of a David Bowie emoji—based on his famous 1973 album Aladdin Sane. Soon we really won’t need language at all.
