Paul Kafasis reports on the imminent end to our long national nightmare:

Today, however, I can breath a sigh of relief. The bird is coming to our emoji. What a time to be alive! Have a look at a full gallery of the new emoji coming in iOS 9.1, which also include a taco, a burrito, an adorable little chipmunk, and much more. Then, sit through a few more weeks of anticipation until we finally get what we deserve!

Good news, the Live Long and Prosper emoji is also in the full list compiled by 9to5Mac, meaning that you’ll be able to type it instead of having to resort to some form of trickery.

So whether you prefer your salutes Vulcan or one-fingered, iOS 9.1 has you covered.
