In reference to the 1973 album 'Aladdin Sane,' Apple created a series of David Bowie emojis that honor the late icon's legacy.
Those who download the iOS 10.2 update from the company will receive both male and female versions of the David Bowie emojis, which are both shown in front of a microphone. With the female version given vibrant pink hair and clothing, the large lightening bolt paint design that covers her face is made to match. Meanwhile, the male version is granted blue hair and clothing, however his face paint uses the same red and blue that was used by the singer.
In addition to the David Bowie emojis, Apple also incorporated symbols that represent a fist pump, shrug, face palm and a number of animals.
