A well-known California aquarium mocked an enormous error in Apple’s squid emoji

Real squid

  • The Monterey Bay Aquarium has mocked Apple's squid emoji for being inaccurate.
  • The aquarium identified that Apple misplaced the squid's siphon, which means it was the other way up.
  • Enterprise Insider has contacted Apple to ask whether or not it plans to appropriate the error.

Apple's squid emoji has been lambasted by the Monterey Bay Aquarium for being anatomically inaccurate.

The aquarium tweeted on Wednesday, declaring an enormous flaw in Apple's rendering of the cephalopod.

Specifically, the aquarium took subject with the siphon, the muscular tube which the squid makes use of to breathe, eliminate waste, and propel itself backwards via the water.

 

Based on Emojipedia, the squid emoji first made its debut in 2016. Enterprise Insider has contacted Apple to ask whether or not it plans to change the design.

Apple has been recognized to alter its emojis in response to public opinion. A preview of a bagel emoji drew such ire from New Yorkers in October that Apple modified it to incorporate cream cheese.
