This should eliminate gun violence.
Apple’s latest software update for the iPhone and iPad features one of its subtlest but most symbolically significant design changes yet. iOS 10, which will be available for free download this fall, removes the revolver emoji and replaces it with a squirt gun.
The change is available now to developers who download iOS 10 beta 4, although I should note that software is not designed for the general public, but rather app creators looking to get their own software ready and working in time for the fall release of iOS 10.
But if you do install iOS 10 beta 4, the revolver is gone and a green squirt gun with an orange tip appears in its place.
For all we know, that’s an assault water pistol that can hold a quart of water. No one needs a weapon like that. The 2nd Amendment only applies to water muskets. I can’t believe Apple would promote water gun violence like this.*
