CALIFORNIA: It is embarrassing but Apple’s emoji designers didn’t get the squid emoji quite right, an aquarium has pointed out.

The Monterey Bay Aquarium took to Twitter to point out that the Apple squid emoji, which was added back in 2016, is in fact, upside down.



In the emoji, the siphon is shown in the front. In reality, the siphon is behind the squid’s head as it helps in locomotion, enable breathing, and get rid of the waste. The aquarium notes in its tweet that the siphon on the front in Apple emoji looks like a ‘weirdo nose’.

Other tech companies have their ocean awareness in place and do not show the siphon in their squid emoji. Perhaps, holidays will be a good time for Apple to review its squid emoji.

Seven years after it first introduced the MacBook Air, Apple has given the device a major upgrade. The new version of the MacBook Air now comes with a Retina display and TouchID. Weighing 2.75 pounds, it has 8GB memory and 128GB of internal storage, a 13.3-inch screen, two USB-C ports, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. It is powered by Apple's secure computing chip, T2. It is the most-affordable Mac, and comes in three finishes – black, grey and gold. Priced at $1199, it can be ordered starting today and will be available next week. The Cupertino-based tech giant is also going green with the new MacBook Air that is made of 100% recycled aluminum. (Image: Reuters)
