No pastrami sandwich or guinea pig emoji in iOS 11.1, dammit

Still no pastrami sandwich. Still no guinea pig. What’s the deal with the cigarette?

I installed iOS 11.1 yesterday, tantalized by Apple’s boasting of tons of new emoji. Confession: Emoji are great fun. Guess what I looked for right after the completed software install?

Many of the 190 new emoji are skin-tone variations on new or existing people or body parts. That’s good: Not everyone is yellow, like the Simpsons. (If you don’t count the different skin-tone versions, there are about 70 new graphics.)

New emoji that I like:

  • Steak. Yum!
  • Shushing finger face. Shhhh!
  • Cute hedgehog. Awww!
  • Scottish flag. Och aye!

What’s still stupidly missing:

  • Pastrami sandwich. Sure, there’s a new sandwich emoji, but it’s not a pastrami sandwich. Boo.
  • There’s a cheeseburger (don’t get me started on the cheese top/bottom debate), but nothing for those who don’t put cheese on their burgers at all. Grrrr.
  • Onion rings. They’ve got fries, but no rings. Waah.
  • Coffee with creamer. I don’t drink my coffee black. Bleh.
  • Guinea pig. That’s our favorite pet, but no cute little caviidae in the emoji. Wheek!

I still don’t like the cigarette emoji, but I guess once they added it in 2015, they couldn’t delete it.

Here is a complete list of all the emoji, according to PopSugar. What else is missing?
