The late and great David Bowie has just been honored via Apple emojis in the Cupertino giant’s new iOS 10.2 update. The pictograms are a set of two symbols inspired by the legendary musician’s 1973 album, Aladdin Sane. Labeled as “singer” emojis, the male and female icons are aptly embellished with a painted lightning bolt streaking one eye as well as a microphone placed right in front of their mugs. The Bowie emojis are accompanied by a shrug, a fist pump, and a face palm symbol.

To bolster your emoji appetite, Apple also included a croissant and a gherkin. As far as animal expressions go, the update wrangled a mallard, a moose, as well as a gorilla to presumably pay tribute to Harambe. Last but not least, 16 new professions are also given a salute, spanning teachers, astronauts, farmers, firefighters and chef emojis.

Apple customers can download the iOS 10.2 update here. Take a look at the David Bowie emojis below and stay tuned for the latest developments, especially the official release date for Jordan Brand’s emojis.
