Emojis are the new trend going on among all phone users, be it Android or iOS lovers. Moreover, the new Unicode 9 update has brought about so many new and improved emojis, that people feel it an utter waste time to type something down when they can simply input an emoji instead.

Apple heard this issue, and with iOS 10, has introduced a new feature which literally transforms some specific words in a sentence into an appropriate emoji. Say, for example, the word ‘Sushi’ will be replaced with the tiny little sushi tray (Sushi on Apple iOS 10.0) from your emojis, the word ‘rainy’ will be too , and so on.

While some people might be totally against the use of this in more professional chats, the biggest problem that iOS users face is that the emoji keyboard isn’t even enabled by default to start with.
