Popular Feature in iOS 18: Intelligent Emojis Generated by AI

May 27, 2024 | by The Jeuns

Last week, there was a playful discussion within a tech news organization’s messaging platform about the idea of using AI to generate emojis in real-time during conversations. Emojis play a vital role in modern communication, used across various messaging platforms on a daily basis. With the constant expansion of available emojis each year, the idea of AI-generated emojis seemed like a convenient solution.

Surprisingly, tech insider Mark Gurman revealed in a recent newsletter that Apple is set to introduce AI features, including the ability to create custom emojis based on text input, in the upcoming iOS 18 update. This innovative feature will allow users to have unique emojis for different conversations, beyond the standard emoji catalog available on Apple devices.

Gurman’s report highlights the potential impact of generative emojis in iOS 18, emphasizing how this new feature will enhance user experience across messaging apps like iMessage. Whether users are familiar with AI products or not, the opportunity to use custom emojis created by AI technology will likely be appealing. This upcoming feature showcases the seamless integration of artificial intelligence in everyday interactions without users even realizing the advanced technology at play.

In addition to the AI-generated emojis, reports have also indicated the introduction of new non-AI emojis in iOS 18 this year. With the continuous evolution of emojis and the integration of AI technology in messaging apps, users can look forward to a more personalized and diverse emoji experience on their Apple devices.
