Apple's Squid Emoji Isn't Quite Right, As Aquarium Highlights
Getting emoji to look right has for some reason, been a challenge.
There was the head-scratching over Apple's very plain bagel emoji, while Unicode earlier this year fixed up the once anatomically incorrect lobster emoji.
It appears there also needs to be work done on Apple's squid emoji, which was added back in 2016.
As raised by the Monterey Bay Aquarium on Twitter, the emoji is actually upside down, and the siphon — which allows a squid to move around, and enables respiration and waste discharge — is meant to be behind the head.
"It just looks like a weirdo's nose," the aquarium wrote.
It's no such problem for other tech companies, who have mostly omitted the siphon from their designs.
Although we've seen the lobster and bagel emoji fixed in the past, who knows if Apple will tend to the issue all these years later.
But really, do you want to share a squid that's been expelling its own waste over its face? Probably not.
