How to access the emoticon keyboard in iOS 5

Apple loves to hide little gems in its software which users can discover. One of these is the ability to choose from among many emoticons by adding the emoji keyboard.

To do this, go to your settings and under General choose Keyboard and then select International Keyboards. Choose to add a keyboard and select Emoji.

The next time you type you can choose this keyboard by choosing the button that looks like a globe next to the space bar.

Adding new keyboards is also a great for students in your class who are learning English or for second language classes.
