Tacos, Chipmunks and Nerd Faces, Oh My!

Emojis. A decade ago, they were unheard of. Today, they’ve practically become ingrained into our digital vocabulary. Recently Apple released its newest iOS 9.1 update that includes more wallpapers and new support for Live photos. The most anticipated additions, of course, are the new emojis. But because we know that scrolling through all of those emojis just to catch a glimpse of the most exciting ones can be overwhelming and time-consuming, we’ve rounded up some of those new emojis that we’ve all been waiting for for a very long time. You’re welcome.

rollingFace With the Rolling Eyes: In case the older eye-roll emoji (or the-side-eyes emoji) doesn’t satisfy your expression of annoyance, maybe this will suffice.


livelongAlien Hands/Live Long and Prosper: This multitasking emoji can serve two important needs: to refer to aliens (in some or another), or to give the iconic Star Trek Vulcan salute of “live long and prosper.”


questionThinking Face: This one is obvious; use this one to show that  you’re thinking or you’ll “get back to them on that one.”
