The death of David Bowie has become one of the most defining and impactful moments of 2016. Since his passing, the icon has been commemorated and memorialized in more ways than one can begin to count. But thanks to Apple’s upcoming iOS 10.2 update, his memory will truly live on forever in the form of themed emoji.
As part of a new batch of ‘career’ oriented emoji, Apple has introduced pictograms of a male and female singer. Both of these singers are depicted with colorful lightning bolts adorning their faces, a homage to the iconic cover of Bowie’s 1973 album Aladdin Sane. Other careers included in the update range from a painter, to a scientist, and to a firefighter.
David Bowie’s final album Blackstar is out now. Stream it below via Spotify:
