Apple users are excited that the iOS 9.1 update includes ‘the finger’ emoji, officially called ‘Reversed Hand With Middle Finger Extended’.
The symbol is already in some Microsoft Windows fonts but it doesn’t look the same as the Apple version. In fact, it doesn’t look the same in the two Microsoft fonts that support emoji!
As you can see, the two Microsoft versions look quite different. The ‘Emoji’ one is solid while ‘Symbol’ is an outline.
Like other emoji, be careful using these symbols because they can look very different on other computers or devices.
(sorry, the heading should be ‘ Giving the Middle Finger with Office’ )
