Apple rescues the peach emoji

“Long live the peachbutt!” Alex Fitzpatrick reports for TIME Magazine. “Apple ruffled many a feather earlier this month when it looked like its peach emoji would no longer resemble a posterior, which many people use it to represent.”

      On another note Jony, to be consistent with the GUI design starting with iOS7 — consider total removal of Skeuomorphism Illustrative EMOJIS. Like leather in shoes 👞 and handbags 👜, felt in the top hat 🎩, wood from an old radio 📻 … I could go on and on.
