With a new phone like the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus, you probably want all the new emojis as well. If you too are a fan of these cute and expressive little faces, you’ll be happy to hear that it’s not hard at all to use them. That’s right, on the new iPhone 8 emoji keyboard that Apple is giving to its users, just like on many other third-party keyboards with emojis.
Whether you will be texting on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or any other social network, even on your mail app, even on topics related to your work, chances are you will bump into one or several different emojis. And wouldn’t it be nice if you could answer just the same? Let us show you what it takes to enjoy all these emojis and the different skin tones, skin colors and so on.
Have you checked your stock keyboard?
In case you haven’t noticed, the keyboard app that came with the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus displays a small smiley icon around the dictation key. If you select that icon, you should unlock all the built-in emojis, little faces that you can start using right away, with all your conversations, within any app where you have access to the stock keyboard app.
Have you tried with a third-party keyboard?
Third-party keyboards can also be installed. If you check the App Store and run a search for emoji keyboard you’ll have a hard time deciding what to download and try out. So, do that and you will gain access to new emojis.
Between the stock and the third-party options, however, pay attention to the skin color of that emoji! With the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, one can use different emojis that express the same thing but are only different in the default skin color and tone!
If you long press a particular emoji that comes with such options, you’ll notice a picker showing up on the screen, with all your other choices. Next, tap and hold on the particular emoji with the desired skin tone and it will turn into a default option. Go on and test everything we have shared with you. Make typing on the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus more joyful and… colorful!
