What is wrong with Apple's squid emoji?
An aquarium took to Twitter to point out that the emoji is upside down.
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.
