How to Fix ‘Predictive Emoji Not Working in iOS 10 on iPhone/iPad’ Issue

Predictive emojis have been quite helpful to pep up your conversations on Messages app, which has been updated in the latest iOS 10. For some, predictive emojis can be intrusive in their interesting chat. But to my mind, this is quite helpful to smooth your chat as they save time by sending emojis instead of text.

For example, if you want to type in CAR in the text, the Predictive QuickType keyboard offers you an emoji of a car; this gives your communication an eye-soothing visual touch. At the same time, your message is conveyed and understood quickly and happily. But note that these predictive emojis appear only when you type a related word. If you enter ‘Happy’, you will notice a smiley; if you enter iPhone, you will find an emoji of an iPhone. How interesting, isn’t it?

While you are having an interesting conversation with your loved ones, predictive emojis should be working smoothly. If there is any hiccup, it would spoil your mood. To ensure that you resume your tête-à-tête quickly, you can follow a few solutions mentioned below.
