The nerfed peach butt emoji included as a component of Apple’s iOS 10.2 upgrade is no more. As spotted today by The Next Web, the third 10.2 developer beta returns the fruit to its curvaceous glory.
The peach emoji is, obviously, a go-to for any anyone who sexts or simply adores sending suggestive fruit. Fans were offended to discover that the 10.2 redesign would round out the peach, viably denying it of its appeal. You can detect the first, blessedly scam by watching out for the peach emoji in the base left corner here:
Dang. The ancient Apple emoji — which were never really meant to be seen bigger than 32 × 32 — are redrawn quite well in iOS 10.2! Good job! pic.twitter.com/X6WskExq1D

This latest iteration adds a little more fuzz in the name of realism than I’m comfortable with, but the overall character of the emoji has been restored. The nightmare is finally over. Long live the booty fruit.
