Is anyone else encountering the same issue on iOS 12. Emojis aren't coming up in the prediction bar. I'm seeing the same issue on an iPhone 8 Plus (Clean install) and an iPhone 7 Plus (OTA). Previously, both were on 11.4.1 and this feature was working. If I switch to the emoji keyboard, the word turns orange and when I tap on it, it's replaced by it's emoji equivalent but it's a pain if I have to do this each time. Did they possibly remove the feature? I followed steps posted in an iOS 11 thread that worked for some but I had no luck. Basically it was toggling off and back on prediction in keyboard settings and/or force restarting the device.
