Apple’s Controversial Emoji Update

Apples most recent iOS 9.1 update has many people excited but many people up in arms. Before this update, the last change allowed users to select different races for certain people emojis and even introduced emojis displayed couples of the same-sex. But one specific emoji in the new set most recently introduced has been causing quite the controversy. The middle finger emoji is one that many claim is well overdue. Others, especially parents of younger children who use iPhones don’t seem to be nearly as excited.

Many people have been weighing in their thoughts and personal stands with local news stations who have been covering this topic since the release last week.
