Apple’s emojis are based on Unicode 9.0 emoji support and as of iOS 10.2 the system now features 104 new emojis, bringing the total among of distinct emojis on iOS to 422. The update also introduces a 3D emoji design to all emojis, making the characters look more lifelike.

During the beta period for iOS 10.2 users complained about the updates Apple made to the peach emoji, which is often used to represent a rear end. Users didn’t like how Apple made the peach emoji more round in iOS 10.2 beta 3; however, the peach emoji in the official iOS 10.2 software is once again more butt-like and 3D. Users will also notice design tweaks among older emojis.
