The community of scientists has shown their disagreement with the design of Apple’s squid emoji in iOS 12. Apparently, they do not agree with some aspects of this emoji since they are not very faithful to the appearance of the cephalopod.
It is not the first time that a great controversy arises around an emoji of iPhone and iPad. Remember that it also happened in his day with the emoji of the Valencian paella, which had mussels, prawns, and peas as ingredients. Something that Apple finally changed in iOS 10.3 including the chicken, the carob, the croqueta, and the lemon.
A little later, a great stir was created with the emoji of the hamburger between iOS and Android. The users discussed a fun question based on the order of placement of each of its ingredients. And it also happened with the emoji of the bagel that unleashed the fury of the citizens of New York.
And now … it’s the turn of the squid’s emoji.
The emoji of the squid is not very true to reality
According to scientists who have criticized Apple’s emoji, the squid siphon (a conduit for breathing, excretion, and propulsion) is not located in the right place. It should be positioned on the opposite side of the head.
“THE SIPHON SHOULD BE BEHIND THE HEAD AND NOW IT JUST SEEMS LIKE A STRANGE NOSE.”
This small anatomical structure of the squid, by the way, is not present in the emojis of Samsung, Microsoft, Facebook, and others.
The truth is that the squid emoji siphon gives it a somewhat strange look, we imagine that it must have been an Apple decision to give it a more aesthetic look … but it does not seem to like much. What do you think?
