Apple’s 157 New Emojis In 2018 Desperately Calls For An ‘Emoji Search Box’
By Yoon Sann Wong, 09 Feb 2018
After expanding its emoji library in the iOS 11 update, Apple decided that there simply isn’t enough visual representation in the existing ideograms to express oneself.
As result, the tech giant’s decided to give you a whooping 157 more.
At this point, two things come to mind: Where is the sloth emoji and if there’s one UI/UX improvement that the 21st century direly needs right now, it’s an ‘emoji search box’.
The latter, by the way, is probably long overdue. “Why does the iOS emoji keyboard not have a search box function the way it does in Messages on Mac?” questions Bradford Bosley on the Official Apple Support Community, dated 2 October 2016, to which he, sadly, never received a reply. Cue: “Can anyone help here?” revisits Bosley on 27 November 2016.
For the sake of everyone who might henceforth have a tough time locating a specific emoji amongst the vast and ever-growing library, Apple had hopefully get back to this query soon.
