Depending on the version of iPadOS your iPad is running, you might not be able to search for Emojis from your on-screen touch keyboard as you can on your iPhone. Fortunately, there’s now a jailbreak tweak that can help with that!
It's a new year, which means there are new emoji in the works. And as is par for the course, we have an early look at what's likely going to be part of the new addition later this year. This updates not as vast as previous years, but there are certainly some noteworthy newcomers.
Whether you send a ton of text messages, spend a lot of time browsing the Web, or like to jot down notes from time to time, the keyboard is something most iPhone owners interact with on a daily basis.
While Apple’s keyboard offers perhaps one of the most refined keyboard user experiences on the market today, it’s not uncommon for the jailbreak community to develop ways of making it better. The latest of such attempts comes by way of a new and free jailbreak tweak dubbed Shortmoji 2 by iOS developer MiRO.
The emojis and symbols “keyboard,” officially named the Character Viewer on Mac, is a handy tool. With it, you can easily add emojis, symbols, characters, and icons to your notes, documents, and emails.
While you can access the Character Viewer a few different ways, one of the simplest is from the menu bar. This way, you don’t have to try and remember another keyboard shortcut or hope the app you’re using offers a menu option.
The setting for this is a bit hidden and not within your Dock & Menu Bar preferences. So here, we’ll show you how to enable and access the emojis and symbols keyboard from your menu bar on Mac.
Apple is currently testing iOS & iPadOS 14.5 with its developer base, and should be releasing it to the general public sometime within the next several weeks assuming all the beta testing stages go smoothly.
The upcoming software update will introduce a bevy of novel features, including more than 217 new Emojis that will help users express themselves in text.
Apple gives you a handy tool for picking out and popping in emojis on your Mac. In notes, emails, or documents, you can open the Character Viewer and drag an emoji or symbol where you want it.
This Viewer has a couple of convenient features too. You can jump right to emojis you use frequently and those you save as favorites. Along with these features, you have the ability to customize the list that displays. So if you want to use technical symbols, geometrical shapes, math symbols, or even pictographs, they’re all there.
You only see a dozen or so emojis when you open the Character Viewer. So here, we’ll show you where the others are so you can customize your Mac emoji list for oddball characters, shapes, and symbols.
As a regular emoji user, it's always bothered me that the iPad's been lacking the tremendously convenient emoji search option which has been available on other Apple platforms for a while now. But the company's new software update has fixed that perplexing omission by bringing the same emoji feature to the Apple tablet as on the iPhone and iPod touch.
Apple's onscreen keyboard on the iPad features separate Emoji and Globe keys. This makes it a lot easier to quickly switch between languages and select the emoji you need. But what if your physical keyboard doesn't have a dedicated Emoji key? In that case, you can assign the iPad emoji picker to the rarely used Globe key, and we walk you through the whole process.
The last few iOS point releases had been all quiet on the emoji front, but iOS and iPadOS 14.2 brought over 100 novelties to users, including such ragers as "Pinched Fingers" (that emphatic gesture which often accompanies a hackneyed impression of an Italian), "Bubble Tea", "Ninja", and "Tamale" (at last!). Whilst stock users will have to update to iOS 14.2 to make use of these little beauties, jailbroken users don't have to, thanks to developer Poomsmart.
Choosing between losing your jailbreak by updating to iOS 14.2, or being unable to spam your friends with the Dodo emoji, is thankfully not necessary. We'll show you how to get the best of both worlds.
Emojis have quickly transformed into one of the most popular ways to share expressions and reactions via messaging and social media platforms. If you’ve ever wanted to enter several of the same Emoji into a text field, however, then you’d find yourself tapping the Emoji key of your choosing repeatedly until satisfied.
LongKeys is a newly released and free jailbreak tweak by iOS developer maximehip that tries to take the edge off of this user experience by allowing typists to simply tap and hold on an Emoji key of their choosing to input several instances of that particular Emoji into the text field all at once.
Apple's just-refreshed MacBook Air with the new Apple M1 laptop chip that was announced yesterday features an updated media key layout in the function row, with the new shortcuts for Dictation, Spotlight and Do Not Disturb functions replacing the previous keys for adjusting brightness and invoking the Launchpad feature. Also, there's now a dedicated Emoji key.
Apple has used the last several weeks to test the latest update for iOS and iPadOS, and now the software is ready for the public.
