Using predictive text to add emojis, or using the iPhone emoji keyboard, lets you customize your messages with symbols like a kiss, a shrug, a thumbs up, a heart, a smiley face, and even a red-headed emoji. When you type a message, your phone will suggest emojis that you can tap to add to your text. Here's how to quickly find and use the perfect emoji for your text message.

Slide to Type, or the QuickPath keyboard, has finally arrived on the iPhone with iOS 13! With the QuickPath keyboard you can compose words by swiping from letter to letter without lifting your finger from the virtual keyboard, and the phone predicts what word you want by noticing when you hesitate or change directions. You can also switch back and forth between swiping and tapping to type, as you prefer. When I first heard of this feature I didn't think much of it, but it quickly became my go to method for typing on my phone, and with all the texting and messaging we do these days, that's a big deal. I found I could compose messages one-handed, with increased overall speed and accuracy. Let's get started.

Sometimes I'll have words randomly capitalized while texting, such as "may" into "May" like the month. If you're bothered by unwanted or random capitalizations while typing on your iPhone or iPad, you can try turning off auto-capitalization in your device's keyboard settings, which can be found under General in the Settings app. While this is not the same as turning off auto-correct, having auto-capitalization off can stop words from being capitalized when you don't want them to be. Try this tip to cut down on your texting frustration!

These days, hands-free iPhone operations are easier than ever. You can navigate in Maps, jam out to music, and look up information on Safari just by asking Siri to take over for you. And you can also use Siri to send hands-free texts, create reminders, make a list in Notes, and more. For most people, Siri commands will take care of all your dictation needs. But if you want to mostly dictate text instead of using a keyboard, you can also enable Dictation on your iOS device. In this article, we'll show you how to send texts and simple emails via Siri and how to enable Dictation if you want to leave your iPhone keyboard behind completely, and we'll share a few simple dictation commands to get you started.

A while back, Apple added more racial diversity to the faces on its emoji keyboard. While none of the emoticons or family groups offer options for different skin tones, the single human characters and body parts (hands, noses, etc.) all come with the diversity options.

Since iOS 10 on the iPhone, you can type a word in messages and Predictive text will suggest the emoji that matches that word. However, most people I’ve talked to don’t want to replace the word with an emoji, they simply want to include the emoji after the word. Luckily, you can add emojis to your messages without opening the emoji keyboard and avoid replacing the word with a simple tap of the space bar. The emoji will remain in your Predictive text suggestions and you can easily select the emoji to appear right after the word for it. I’ll show you what I mean below; here’s how to prevent emojis from replacing words in Messages.

Owning an iPhone makes it very convenient to complete a variety of tasks, including those that require writing.

Finally, iOS 10 has options for people who are multilingual. Previously, your iPhone had a singular language, which meant Autocorrect would try to change French words to English, even if you were using the French keyboard. But with iOS 10 on iPhone, your Autocorrect can be multilingual and solve this frustrating problem for those who know multiple languages or are learning them. With iOS 10, you can type text in multiple languages (regardless of what keyboard you’re using) and Autocorrect will make suggestions for the multiple languages. Here’s how to have multilingual Autocorrect on iPhone with iOS 10.
