Apple’s next big iOS upgrade, iOS 9, will eventually come with many new emojis — among them, a unicorn and a bamboo plant (?!) — but, who cares? The show is stolen by the debut of the one and only middle finger.

Up until now, only a handful of emojis could express frustration, like the “unamused” and “rage” smilies. But honestly, no one will take your anger seriously with the angry cat. There is just nothing like a middle finger emoji, no matter what color or how many skin tones it comes in.

Developers can access the new emojis now, but it’s not clear when these emojis will be available to everyone. Apple’s iOS 9 officially launches to the public on September 16.
