I love my new iPhone 7! I was just writing an email and noticed an autocorrect feature I never saw before. When you type certain words an emoji associated with the word appears as an autocorrect option. I noticed this when I typed the word love and a ❤ came up. I then tried other words. I was curious what would come up for divorce and mediation but nothing did. This is actually a new feature in IOS 10. When I googled emoji and autocorrect, I found out more from MacRumors. “In iOS 10, Apple is making it even easier to use emojis with an all-new replacement and predictive system that replaces key words and phrases with relevant emoji characters. Although still short of a full-featured search functionality — which many have asked for — the new emoji replacement ability turns text messages into emoji-filled communications that are fun alternatives to basic blocks of text.” This may start a whole new trend in writing. Can you imagine the memorandum of understanding for a mediated divorce case written with emoji! Instead of saying the plaintiff get the house and car the agreement might say the plaintiff gets the ? and ? . Instead of saying the plaintiff gets child support the agreement might say the plaintiff gets ?. It might even help!
