Mask emoji on iOS 14. 2 is a lot more cheerful than before

  • Apple is doing its (tiny) share of making mask-wearing a little less dreary.  In the next version of its mobile operating system, iOS 14.2, the mask-wearing emoji now appears to be smiling.  Originally, the Face with Medical Mask emoji had a neutral (if not a little sad) face expression.
  • But Emojipedia has done a direct comparison of the new emoji with the regular, Smiling Face emoji, and they're the same thing, the only difference being the mask.
  • And while the smile isn't directly visible on the new emoji (because of, you know, the mask), it is quite obvious that it has a cheerful face.  A comparison between the mask-wearing and the smiling face emoji indicates that they're the same, with the mask being the only difference.
