If you're looking to spice up your messages to your friends and family, you can litter them with emoji all you want! If that doesn't sound important to you, then you haven't seen the kind of cheers emoji get on stage or the amount of interest they generate on social platforms. If you like sending emoji in your texts and iMessages , Apple makes doing that incredibly easy.

Between Tapbacks for reacting directly to a message and using machine learning to know which emoji to recommend, Apple understands that these little pictograms are some of the best iPhone communication tools. Apple's predictive QuickType keyboard can suggest emoji as well as, you know, regular words. Tap on a word that's highlighted orange to replace it with its corresponding emoji. They're similar to Slack or Facebook emoji reactions and drop right onto any iMessage bubble sent your way. Context is king, and a thumbs up Tapback to your Mom might mean something different than one to your best friend. : Like, love, or fave Thumbs up : Happy, approve, or agree.

: Happy, approve, or agree Thumbs down : Sad, disapprove, or disagree. Touch and hold (long press) or double-tap on an iMessage with the Tapback you want to change. Using emoji has never been easier, and Tapbacks just somehow made things even simpler.

Apple's New Animoji

Announced at the September 12 Apple Event , Animoji is a new feature included as part of iOS which sends "animated emojis" in iMessage that respond to your own facial expressions. The TrueDepth camera analyzes more than 50 different muscle movements to mirror your expressions in 12 Animoji. Above: Craig Federighi demonstrates the chicken Animoji on stage at the September 12 Apple Event. The result of your recording is a video of a cute (or creepy) emoji which appears to read your message back out, mimicking the same facial expressions you used when creating it.

Best case scenario: send some amusing messages to friends and families where the panda, unicorn, or poo wish them a happy birthday or other greeting. Worst case scenario: ignore this particular iMessage app and continue using regular (non-animated, silent) emojis as you normally would.
