The best new iOS 10.2 emoji you will want to use right away

Update your iPhone right now to get these

Apple has just announced its latest update for iPhone users. iOS 10.2 includes new wallpapers for iPhone 7 and 7 Plus users, the usual bug fixes, and Messages full screen effects.

But its highlight is undoubtedly the new emoji numbering over a 100 to broaden your texting horizons.

We’ve rounded up the best for you to zero in on and spam your friends with (if they've also updated to iOS 10.2, watchOS 3.1.1 and macOS Sierra 10.12.2). 

Speaking of which, hey Apple, can we get a Spam emoji up in here?

MC, please

“Sorry, I’m sick” doesn’t quite have the same effect unless you punctuate it with this emoji to make your point. It’s not that you want to stay home from work, it’s just that you don’t want to spread your germs to your colleagues in your open concept office.

Still getting emails? Drive your point home with this passive aggressive green-faced emoji. Works for when you’re hungover or jealous, too.

Brunch time

There’s nothing better than two strips of bacon for breakfast - well, maybe four strips. To get your friends up and moving for your Sunday brunch date, tempt them with a row of bacon emoji. 

And if they’re vegan/vegetarian, there’s always the new avocado emoji, and a salivating face to drive everyone’s appetites into overdrive.

When all else fails...

Our favourite of the lot has to be the facepalm and the shrug emoji. In any case, it's a toss-up as they're the perfect vague response to any situation you might not be able to articulate an answer to.

What does it mean? Anything you want it to mean, really. Use them to evade tough situations.
