Apple reveals the most popular emoji - and there are lots of tears

Apple reveals the most popular emoji - and there are lots of tears”

Apple didn't share what the exact numbers of usage each emoji has, but they did share how they collected their data.

In a recent report that revealed how people use their products, Apple included a chart revealing the emojis used most frequently by English-speaking users in the United States. Now, Apple has revealed which specific emoji is the most popular across their operating systems - at least with U.S. -based users.

According to a new report from MacRumors, the face topped Apple's list of the top 10 emoji, ahead of a red heart, loudly crying face, heart eyes face, face throwing a kiss, face with rolling eyes, skull, smiling face with smiling eyes, tired face, and thinking face. Maybe it's not as fun as emoji statistics, but it's no less important.

Apple users are doing a lot of laughing, according to new data released by the tech company.

The chart isn't labeled, so it's not possible to know just how many people are firing off tears-of-joy emojis in total - but it appears to be the most heavily used choice by a landslide.

Apple applies this differential privacy policy on its various operating systems, such as macOS and iOS, and it uses the results to make features of those operating systems smarter.

Their Differential Privacy is used on QuickType suggestions, emoji suggestions, lookup hints, Safari energy draining domains, Safari autoplay intent detection, Safari crashing domains and health type usage.

Basically, the idea is Apple can add random noise to individual user data to protect privacy.

To that end, Apple has come up with its own technique known as "local differential privacy".
