Rejoice Internet, Apple has released iOS 9.1, and coupled with all the boring updates to the operating system are a ton of new emojis including a middle finger, cheese and the messiah of emojis: a taco.
There’s also a unicorn emoji. If your head hasn’t exploded yet then it should have by now.
Twitter had an absolute meltdown about it:
