How To Unlock The Secret Vulcan Salute Emoji In iOS 8.3

Approved as a new Unicode symbol in 2014, the new emoji is now visible to users on iOS 8.3 and OS X 10.10.3 — although, you can’t pick it from the the character sheet just yet.

  • Open this Tweet on your iPhone
  • Copy the Vulcan salute emoji
  • Go to Settings > General > Keyboard > Shortcuts > +
  • Paste the Vulcan salute emoji into the Phrase section
  • Create a shortcut
