David Bowie among the 72 new emoji coming to iPhones

Face palm.

An avocado.

An owl.

David Bowie.

Just some of the 72 new emoji set to arrive on iPhones when Apple rolls out its iOS 10.2 update in coming weeks. 


The new batch includes 16 professions, which includes 'Singer', styled after David Bowie's Aladdin Sane.


Various emoji have also undergone a redesign, including the notable transformation of the peach to look like less of an innuendo-baiting arse. 


The emoji are likely to arrive on handsets once Apple launches the new iOS update later this November. 

Make the most of your ass-shaped peach for the next few weeks.
