A few days ago, Apple users who downloaded the new iOS 9 were pissed to find out that it didn’t come with the new emojis. The horror, the torment!
But while iOS 9.1 isn’t available to the public yet, it is possible to get that middle finger before all your friends do. All you have to do is sign up for Apple’s Beta Software Program, which will get you access to iOS Betas before they’re released to the public.
Once you’ve signed up, visit beta.Apple.com/profile on your iPhone’s Safari browser, sign in with your Apple ID, and download the profile to the iPhone you’re on.
Once your iPhone has restarted, update your software as per normal.
However, be aware that signing up for Beta softwares may give you more than just the new emojis. Betas are used to test software before they’re ready to be released to the public, so you may experience some buggy-ness in your daily activities. Be sure to backup your phone onto your computer before you update, in case you want the option to go back to plain old iOS 9. However, if you’re desperate for the new emojis, this is one way to get them.
Just make sure your friends have them too, or they’ll be wondering why you keep sending them a bunch of random symbols.
