If you update your iPhone from iOS 8.3 from iOS 8.2, say goodbye to the old “prayer hands” emoji.
Even though most people call this emoji ‘prayer hands,’ it’s also known as the “high five” emoji, according to Emojipedia. The disappearance of the yellow light behind the hands makes more sense if you think about the picture as a high five.
People still aren’t pleased about the change though:
Never gonna update my software nags in now. Not losing my prayer hands emoji. Nah.
