Apple just released America’s top emoji’s! Some of your favorites might be on the list. Veuer’s Natasha Abellard (@NatashaAbellard) has the story.
The most popular emoji is the “Face with Tears of Joy.” The tragicomic figure is stuck between sobbing and laughing, and is equally perfect for expressing the soaring highs of life and the depressing lows.
It’s the most popular emoji among English-speaking iOS and Mac users in the United States, according to Apple, which published a chart showing the top emoji usage on its devices, viaMacRumors. The reveal comes from a somewhat unexpected place: an overview about how Apple collects anonymized user data and analytics in iOS and macOS to better improve the user experience. In this case, figuring out which emoji users type the most can help the company better suggest them for future use.
