Apple Celebrates World Emoji Day With an Emoji-Themed Makeover for iTunes Movies

Today, July 17, is celebrated as World Emoji Day thanks to this day being marked on the iOS "calendar" emoji. In celebration, Apple has updated the iTunes Movies storefront with a new emoji-filled carousel that uses the popular smartphone characters to describe recent film releases, as well as older movies.


Some of the films referenced include Kong: Skull Island, Beauty and the Beast, Get Out, Stephen King's It, Logan, Arrival, and more. The iTunes emoji makeover is simply a visual overhaul of the store with no sale prices appearing on any of the participating films.


Apple often updates the iTunes Movies storefront to coincide with new film releases, most recently offering a LEGO makeover to celebrate the digital release of The LEGO Batman Movie. Earlier in June, a few decade-based film collections were put on sale on iTunes to give users the chance to get bundles of films together at lower prices.

(Thanks, Kenneth!)

I'm sorry, all I see is squares with question marks because apple refuses to release emoji updates for iOS 6,7,8,9 for older devices.


Maybe try using a device that's been made in the last 5 years.

World Emoji Day... uh huh.

Looking for the brown pile emoji to appropriately express my thoughts. Because sometimes words are just not enough.

There's a world emoji day...?


Well, at least we can declare our dissatisfaction of it within the language...



Are they doing this on the Apple TV's iTunes Movie Store too?

Speaking of that, is there a way to disable emoji viewing on every modern device? I have the keyboards disabled so they don't show up but if someone sends a unicode character, can I just get the string or a blank box? I can't read what any of these emoticons mean and would like to just not see them at all. No one I know uses them but when I'm reading reddit, they show up a lot and it's really annoying.
