What is wrong with Apple's squid emoji?

VIEW IN APP
CALIFORNIA: It is embarrassing but Apple’s emoji designers didn’t get the squid emoji quite right, an aquarium has pointed out.

The Monterey Bay Aquarium took to Twitter to point out that the Apple squid emoji, which was added back in 2016, is in fact, upside down.


In the emoji, the siphon is shown in the front. In reality, the siphon is behind the squid’s head as it helps in locomotion, enable breathing, and get rid of the waste. The aquarium notes in its tweet that the siphon on the front in Apple emoji looks like a ‘weirdo nose’.

Other tech companies have their ocean awareness in place and do not show the siphon in their squid emoji. Perhaps, holidays will be a good time for Apple to review its squid emoji.

Apple's revamped iPad Pros (12.9-inch and 11-inch) come with slimmed-down bezels and will use facial-recognition technology to unlock the device and authorise app and Apple Pay purchases. With the introduction of the FaceID feature, the iPad has forgone the Home button.

It also now comes with a USB-C port and is powered by Apple’s new A12X Bionic chip. With the USB-C port the iPad now serves as a 'charge out' device; you can connect your iPhone to it and charge.

The new iPads, in silver and space grey colour varinats, sport a Liquid Retina Display - similar to the iPhone XR. The 11-inch iPad Pro can be bought at $799, and the 12.9-inch at $999.

Apple also unveiled a redesigned Apple Pencil that connects to the side of the iPad Pro with a magnet and charges wirelessly from it. The old Smart Keyboard has also been updated - to Smart Keyboard Folio - and it lets you place the iPad at two different typing angles.
