Apple recently released a Differential Privacy Overview which included lots of info on things that are not emojis and then some info on things that are. Some of that emoji info was a summary of the most popular ones amongst English speakers in the United States. The most popular, by a landslide, is this lil guy: 😂.
(Well, I guess there's more. MacRumors notes there aren't any numbers provided by Apple, just a graph showing how much more used that emoji is than its nine runners up.
