The David Bowie Emoji Has Arrived in New iOS Update

A new emoji inspired by the cover of David Bowie's 1973 album Aladdin Sane will appear on Apple's upcoming iOS 10.2 update, according to Emojipedia. The "singer" emoji is among 16 new professions being added to the keyboard and will feature both a man and woman in front of a microphone with a lightning bolt painted across one eye.

As for the Aladin Sane-inspired emoji, the design is among the more unique tributes to Bowie, who died in January after a long battle with cancer he largely kept secret. Just days before his death, Bowie released his final album, Blackstar, though three of his final recordings recently appeared on the cast album for his musical, Lazarus.
