Learn how to use the new emojis in iOS 8.3
First we started with iOS 8.3. The first thing you need to do is make sure you have updated your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to the latest version of the system and once you have done this simply tap on the balloon icon located on the left side of the space bar on the keyboard.
You’ll notice that the emojis keyboard has changed in iOS 8.3 and you can now scroll through them all faster and more smoothly to find the image you want to send. From here, all you have to do is tap on the emoji you want and keep your finger pressed to display the different options it offers and without removing it from the screen slide it to select the tone you want to use.
However, it must be said that this function of iOS 8.3 will not work with all icons, but will only be valid for emojis that have human elements . In this way, Apple wants to give more racial diversity to the emojis, although other new emojis have been added that have nothing to do with this, like a new Mac or a clock, among other things.
