New Apple Patent Reveals Stock And Custom Emoticons/Emoji For iOS

A recently published patent application of Apple’s reveals that iOS will at some point gain new widget creating modules specifically relating to Emoji Characters stock or custom. The architecture reveals that modules will appear around the time that videoconferencing comes to the iPhone. With Apple having just revealed FaceTime, the new emoji character modules should be on their way in the next year or so if all goes well.

We know emoji better as simply emoticons, but that limits the technology. Apple will extend emoji to accept custom characters that you simply draw on your touch screen and then record for later use. Emoji will uniquely be able to be used as custom map locator symbols as well. While emoticons are big North America, they’re a craze in other parts of the world. So get ready, the iPhone is about to jump on board this craze and do it in style.
