  • Type the message you want to send. Your iPhone's Predictive Text feature will suggest Emojis based on the words you type. This means the fastest way to find an Emoji is to type a word associated with the Emoji.

  • To replace the word with the suggested Emoji, tap on the Emoji before adding a space after the word.
  • If you want the suggested Emoji to follow the word, add a space and then tap the Emoji.

  • If you want to add your Emojis all at once, type the entire message and then tap the Emoji or Globe icon in the bottom left of your keyboard.

  •  The highlighted words have Emojis associated with them.

  • Tap any of the highlighted words to replace them with an Emoji.

  • Some words have multiple associated Emojis, so when you tap the word you’ll have multiple Emojis to choose from.

  • Be choosy about using Emojis; sometimes replacing a word with an Emoji doesn't look right!

Enjoy messaging without spending so much time to find the right emoji!
