  • ^* The character 0x14 is a solid Apple logo. Apple uses U+F8FF in the Corporate Private Use Area for this logo, but it is usually not supported on non-Apple platforms.
  1. ^ The addition of U+1F589 to Unicode postdates the creation of Apple's mapping file, which maps this character to the Private Use Area as U+F802.
