Lifehacker found a way to type smiles instead of words, while without switching the keyboard. It’s all about the functions of a predictive set, which does not work for every1.
For the first time, Apple introduced the function of a predictive set of text during the IOS 8 release in 2014. Russian -speaking users had to wait for this function for a whole year. Finally, with the release of iOS 9 Quicktype received the support of the great and mighty.
The essence of the predictive set is to display an additional panel with prompts and the final options for the word introduced by the user. Automobiles of words on smiles are also proposed here.
But only a number of users do not come out to turn on the auto -replacement of words on the smiles. In the iOS settings, there is no point responsible for the inclusion of a function. How to be? Teach a predictive iOS set yourself.
1. Open the “Settings” → “Basic” → “Keyboard” and make sure that the slider is on the “Prective Set” item is included.
2. Now open the application “Notes”. In order for a predictive set to replace the words with the corresponding emoticons, it is necessary to introduce several phrases in which one of the words-somails are found.
In the sentences you have invented, replace the word “sun” with an appropriate emoticon, choosing it on the emoji keyboard. It is necessary to write several sentences and phrases in which the word “sun” will be both smile and directly with the word.
It will have to play with such phrases until the proposals of smiles for the introduced words appear on the panel of the predictive set. Here are some of them: “coffee”, “running”, “dumbbells”, “cat” and so on.
After such compulsory training, a predictive set will automatically recognize the words, turning them into emoticons, and you will no longer have to open the keyboard of Emoji.
