The new iPhone update for iOS 10.2 comes complete with brand new emojis of David Bowie. Check them out below.
The figures of new professions such as firefighters, astronauts, teachers and more come in the new emoji pack – along with a character resembling Bowie’s iconic artwork to ‘Aladdin Sane’; complete with lightning bolt, flamboyant hair and even a very Ziggy Stardust-esque jump suit.
Acting as a template for various emotions, users will be able to make the David Bowie emoji shrug his shoulders, cross his fingers and even face palm. In fitting Bowie gender neutral style, the emoji comes in both male and female form.
