I've recently started using a bluetooth keyboard with my iPad. I was wondering if there are any keyboard shortcuts for emoji ? Switching to the on screen keyboard is possible but forces me to take my fingers off the hardware keyboard and tap the screen which is a huge waste of time. On Mac the autocorrect replaces stuff "<3" with their emoji equivalent but iOS doesn't seem to do that.

Regards.

I've found a workaround using the "text replacement" feature. In Settings -> General -> Keyboard -> Text replacement, you can add the emoji and assign them their equivalent text-based shortcuts, like in the screenshot below.

  • Those replacement lists ought to sync between Mac & iOS over iCloud, so you can use the same on both. – Tetsujin Apr 22 '17 at 16:09
