Apple has updated its range of emojis and now features the popular Arab gesture which means ‘wait’ or ‘be patient.’ It can also mean be quiet or to calm down. There’s not a day that it’s not used in the DubaiLAD office tbh.
Which will be great news for Arab parents across the world who undoubtedly use the gesture the most!
The updated Apple emojis features on the latest iOS 14.2 updates.
The gesture is very common across the Middle East – you simply bring your fingertips together while holding your hand out. It’s also referred to as Osbor Shwaya and shway shway in Arabic slang. As well as being popular in the Middle East, it’s also a common sight in Italy.
