    I was somewhat surprised that the basic smiley isn't number one. Crying laughing is. Hearts and heart eyes next. Basic smiley is in the top ten though (number six).

    As per the article: "All of the emoji shared today were previously included in the new Unicode 10 standard released in June."

    The Unicode consortium is not the same thing as Apple, so Apple didn't add anything that wasn't already standardized by someone else. If you truly upset about a breastfeeding emoji, here's the link to the Unicode consortium so that you can write them a complaint: http://www.unicode.org/contacts.html

    Dang. Forgot to account for the fact that "content" isn't good enough-- everything has to be extreme...

    The movie Idiocracy was really a sci-fi comedy? Sometimes reality is just funny.

    Because every mammal that gives live births on the planet breast feeds, and normal people aren't offended by a basic parenting function.

    So when an iPhone user sends a water pistol emoji to an Android user, is it still going to be a gun on the other end?

    Do you even use a Mac, or are you basing the assumption of iTunes as a whole on the PC version of iTunes use?

    Everything is offensive to at least one person. At the end of the day you just have to make sure everybody is offended equally. Otherwise nothing will happen.

    I think I'm the only one who has never used that tears of joy emoji. I hate it. It's so obnoxious, especially when used with several in a row over stuff that isn't even funny or just mildly amusing like:

    I already feel like punching a wall. Wait..... oh God... I used it. I feel dirty.

    Edit: Thankfully they don't show up on MacRumors

    Breastfeeding is not a sexual act, unless you view infants eating in a sexual manner. Therefore, your comparison is invalid. What you're proposing is some bizarre prohibition on what you personally want to not see, when you have every option to not use the emojis in question. No one needs you to nanny the world, and I certainly think no one here asked you to play tastemaker for society.

    The normal circle-face emojis are all yellow and can't be changed. Only the human-looking emojis can be altered.

    Emojis? Who cares. Don't have that option turned on since I am not 11 years old.

    Apple's news is really about emojis? Mac mini 1000 days old, totally missed the mark with Mac Pro, & my local Apple store still does not have iPad pros (12.9) in stock.

    But yeah Apple, make a big deal out of smiley faces f0r 11 year olds. Timmy needs to focus on delivering product.

    It's not, my point is why is it LESS OFFENSIVE than a pistol...

    No one said they were offended by breastfeeding! Just like no one said they were offended by a freaking pistol!

    I am not offended that someone breastfeeds at home. I am offended when I am paying $100 for dinner and the lady at the next table proceeds to breastfeed. Some things are private. This is one of them.

    I proposed no prohibition! I'm protesting against Apple nannying me! I don't give a **** if there's a breastfeeding emoji, but I don't want Apple to tell me I can't have a ****ing pistol emoji!

    For most of us here we don't care so much, but for the average joe that's actually the main reason why they update. It is a clever way of getting those people to update when they are reluctant to do so, even if Apple unintentionally mean to do that.

    "Ugh... I wish my phone would stop bugging me with this stupid update! *hits ignore*"

    *reads twitter and sees everyone talking about new emojis in said update*

    "OMG! I'm updating now! I want that puking one sooo much!"

    I'm not even mocking them there or trying to, that's what they say every time a new iOS version which includes new emojis trends.

    Emoji's were fun for a while but now there are just too many of them. It takes forever to find the right one and they're poorly organized. As I said in another thread they will likely end up like the old dingbats fonts.

    No. All these emoji make it harder for users to express themselves because it takes longer to browse thru 500 emojis to find the one you want than to just type a word or phrase...
