Type a word in messages, and predictive text will suggest the emoji that matches that word. Many people don’t want to replace a word, even with emoji as cute or useful as the smiley face, thinking, crying, or tears of joy emoji; they simply want to include the emoji after the word. Luckily, you can add emojis to your messages without opening the emoji keyboard, then 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.

The iPhone's Bedtime feature is a sleep app, an alarm clock app, and a sleep tracker app all in one. Best of all, since Apple wants to help us all get a better night’s sleep, Bedtime has been included in the Clock app since iOS 10. Now, don’t panic; Alarm is still very much alive within the Clock app too, but Bedtime has the added benefit of allowing you to see how much sleep you’ll get with the sleep schedule you have, and it will also remind you when it’s time for bed each night.
