Emoticons are the little icons created from punctuation and symbol keys and are inserted into text to indicate your mood or intention. Most desktop computer programs automatically convert symbols to graphical emoticons. For example, if you type in :-) most programs will automatically convert it to a smily face emoji symbol. iPhone keyboards automatically have a stock of emojis, but you can also download free emoji apps from the App Store. With the introduction of iOS 10, you can also add emojis to text messages by simply typing in the text field with a description of the emoji symbol you want to use. We'll go over that and more below; here's how to add emojis to text messages.
