PSA: Apple just changed the peach emoji forever

This is a tragedy.

By Natasha Harding

Today is a sad, sad day for those of us who like to use and abuse the emoji keyboard for its unintended purposes. In particular, we’re talking about the beloved peach emoji that has an uncanny resemblance to that of a toned butt.

But the big wigs at Apple have decided enough is enough and changed the peach emoji forever with blatant disregard for us folk.

The most recent iOS 10.2 update means that the juicy fruit now actually looks a little more like a peach IRL, and less like a tush. ~SOB~.

Here’s the side-by-side comparison.

Yep, they've ruined everything.

Aside from changing the outline so that it's round (as opposed to bum shaped), the crack has also been pushed around to the side, meaning the resemblance is almost completely gone (unless you're keen for a butt profile).

No word yet on whether the eggplant and water splash emoji will survive the latest transformation but for the meantime we’re labeling these guys as ‘endangered’ and praying to our lucky stars that the madness will stop.
