Apple brings back the peach-butt emoji in iOS 10.2 beta 3

How the peach emoji got its groove back.

Sexting has been saved thanks to iOS 10.2 beta 3.

The first developer preview of iOS 10.2 redesigned every emoji to look more realistic, with more detail that would look better super-sized on macOS and iOS 10. But it turns out that people didn’t want to send a realistic-looking peach emoji (see image, right). They wanted to continue sending a peach emoji that kind of looked like a butt.

So, the internet mourned the impending loss of the beloved peach-butt emoji, and all the potential innuendos that came with it. But now, it appears that the grief might have been premature. The third developer preview of iOS 10.2 has the peach emoji looking like a butt again.

Why this matters: The fact that the peach emoji in iOS 10.2 beta 3 closely resembles the infamously-sexy look means that Apple was responding to users when it reverted to the original design. And when it comes to emoji redesigns, Apple has not always been so responsive.

This means that throughout these beta releases, Apple is actually listening to user feedback and tweaking things accordingly, regardless how silly or inconsequential that may seem.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
