How to bring iOS 10 Predictive Emoji on iOS 9 devices

There are many shortcuts to texting in iOS, so Apple has implemented some features to makes texting more convenience and time-saving. For example, we now have the word suggestion feature. While you type, there is an extra bar on top of your keyboard to learn your context and suggest appropriate words that you will type next.

On the new iOS 10, Apple introduces one more feature called Predictive Emoji. Just like the traditional Predictive feature, but if you use iMessage on iOS 10, it will now suggest emoji as regular words. As you know, iOS 10 can learn what you want to type next and suggest it to you in the form of emoji.

But unfortunately, there are many iOS users are still using iOS 9, specifically, the jailbroken iOS 9. If you are in that case, what will you do? There is a new jailbreak tweak that can help you get this Emoji prediction feature on older firmware.

EmojiSuggest can add emojis to the prediction bar in iOS 9 (the same in iOS 10). Not only that but this new tweak can also predict about 700 words with support for basic plurals
