Get ready to blow up your BFF’s phone! Apple has unveiled 150 new emojis, which means iPhone users can now send tacos, a unicorn, and even flip the bird via text!

If you are sick of using the same emojis every day, never fear…new ones are here! After teasing a new batch of emojis months ago, Apple finally released its iOS 9.1 update on Oct. 21 — and the long-awaited emojis came with it! Amongst the 150 new emojis are the highly demanded taco and middle finger, along with plenty of other random images that are sure to make any iPhone user ecstatic. Get more info below!

It was probably a no-brainer for Apple to include the taco, as it was one of the most requested emojis prior to the update. Other food included in the new lineup is a burrito, cheese, popcorn, and a chili pepper. Much to the dismay of avocado lovers, that’s one food that didn’t make the cut this time. But there’s plenty more to hopefully make that sadness go away!

For those texters who aren’t brave enough to send someone a middle finger via text, there are certainly some tamer emojis available in the new bunch — heck, there’s even a Vulcan salute emoji for all you Trekkies! Some other fun notables include a champagne bottle, a spider web, and a robot face. Needless to say, Apple just opened a whole new door for expressing yourself through emojis!

Still not seeing an emoji you were hoping for? The Unicode Consortium, the company behind the selection of emojis, shared that there are some new characters being considered for the next round of emoji updates, ABC News reports. So keep an eye out for bacon, a cowboy, a clown, a pregnant woman, and a person taking a selfie in the near future!

iPhone users, if you want in on the new emoji action, install the latest update on your phone by going to Settings > General > Software Update. Restart your phone once it’s installed, then let the taco, robot, and unicorn sending commence!

What do you think of the new emojis, HollywoodLifers? Are there still some you’d like to see become available? Share your thoughts below!
