How to enable iPhone emoticons and smiley faces on the iPhone 5 or iOS 6:
Have you ever seen people sending iPhone emoticons and smiley faces via text message? I found myself wondering, “How the heck did they just send me a picture of a little pile of poop with eyes?!” Well today you will finally know how to join in on the fun by enabling the Emoji keyboard.
ASK Designs put together a nice picture tutorial so you can emote the day away:
1. Go to Settings
2. Hit General
3. Now go to Keyboard
4. Choose Keyboards
5. Select Add New Keyboard
6. Scroll down to Emoji and add it
7. Let’s test it out in a new text message! Just click the globe icon in the lower left.
If you have added the keyboards of any other language(s) in the past, you may have to tap the globe more than once. When you see the emoticons, you know you have hit the globe the correct number of times!
8. Just hit the globe icon again to switch back to your regular keyboard.
For the most part, the emoticons are the same but I have noticed a few new smileys and other cool stuff.
That iPhone emoticon with Ray Bans on is one cool cat:
