How do I automatically convert text into emojis on my iPad?

To easily convert text into its corresponding emoji on your iPad or iPhone your device must be running iOS 10 or later. Once you have iOS 10 or later installed, just open your Messages app and type a message like normal. Once you message is finished, tap the globe icon to open the emoji keyboard, then tap any highlighted words to convert them into emoji. This only works with words that already have an emoji on the stock Apple keyboard. Once you have converted all the words into emojis, tap the blue arrow to send your message.
