Everybody’s favorite yellow emoticons will have even more verve on the new Apple Watch.
Apple has devised new animated emoticons that allow users to devise customized facial expressions by touching different portions of the figure’s face. For instance, users can touch the emoji’s mouth to widen his smile or tap his eyebrows to raise them higher. The 3D figures spring to life before being texted off to a friend also using an Apple Watch.
The redesigned emojis are a way to compensate for the fact that the Apple Watch screen is prohibitively small for sending traditional text message to friends. In addition to animated emojis, Apple Watch will analyze incoming texts and present a selection of potential responses that might make sense in context.
