Want iOS 10’s Emoji prediction but not willing to give up your jailbreak? Here’s the solution
One of the new features which has a lot of people excited about in Apple Inc.’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) iOS 10 is Keyboard Emoji prediction. The feature works by recognizing keywords which are mirrored by Emojis; for example, if you type love, the heart emoji will show up in the predictions list. This allows you to use Emojis without having to spend a lot of time in the Emoji drawer searching for the one you want.
Unfortunately for the folks in the jailbreak community who are going to be stuck with iOS 9 until a new jailbreak arrives, there was previously no way to get the handy feature on their device. But now, thanks to a skilled jailbreak developer, you can get Emoji prediction on your jailbroken iOS 9 phone in a few simple steps. You get to keep your jailbreak, and enjoy the features of iOS 10 as well. The tweak is entitled “EmojiSuggest” and is available on the Big Boss Repo for free right now.
Currently, the tweak only supports the English language, but people on Reddit are coming together to compile translations for other languages as well which will later be incorporated into the tweak via an update. If you want to get the tweak right now, simply launch Cydia on your phone and after letting the sources refresh, search for EmojiSuggest. Install the tweak on your device and the restart the Springboard.
And that’s it. Emoji suggestions will now be incorporated into the stock Apple keyboard. Enjoy. If you have any questions, please let us know in the comments.
