Yes, you read that correctly. Apple's new upcoming iOS 10.2 update is set to include male and female emojis based upon the late, great David Bowie.
The "singer" characters (ebowji anyone?) will sport the iconic lightning bolt from Bowie's 1973 album 'Aladdin Sane'. Other new emojis will include a face palm, shrug and fist pump, plus a host of new foods, animals and professions.
As if confirming out regression into a heiroglyphic state, New York's MoMA gallery also recently added 176 original emojis to its permanent collection. Who needs words anyway?
