iPhone users can now use emoji to roll their eyes, flip the bird

The 184 new emoji available in Apple's latest iOS, released to the public Wednesday, will allow iPhone users to text with a greater variety of nuance and expression than ever.

Of the new additions, some of the most useful will no doubt include the "Face With Rolling Eyes" (to convey disdain), the "Face With Thermometer" (to tell people you're sick) and the "Reversed Hand With Middle Finger Extended" (so you can tell your exes how you really feel about them without saying a word).

While the middle finger emoji has been approved by the Unicode Consortium since June 2014, Apple has lagged behind Microsoft Windows 10 and WhatsApp for Android in supporting it until now.
