Jeremy Burge has a fun post on Emojipedia showing all the new emojis Apple is adding/changing with the upcoming iOS 14.5 update. One note he makes is the way Apple continues to brand its emoji with Apple products. For instance, the headphone emoji now looks very much like AirPods Max.
I don’t begrudge Apple this. If I had my way, the Apple book emoji would look like a MacSparky Field Guide. 😍
However, I do note how Apple continues to use new emojis in point iOS updates to encourage folks to update. For all of the non-nerds out there, new emoji is the world’s biggest 🥕 when it comes to updates.
