We love to express ourselves in various ways. When chatting online, emojis are a great way to convey our thoughts and feelings. Adding an emoji keyboard to the iPhone is easy. You can activate it when setting up your new iPhone. If, for some reason, you didn’t, then let’s look at an easy way to add emojis to the iPhone keyboard.
How to Add an Emoji Keyboard to iPhone and iPad
Step # 1. Open Settings → General Tap.
Or, open any application such as notes, messages, WhatsApp, etc. And start typing. Now on the keyboard, press and hold the globe icon, then tap on Keyboard Settings.
Step # 2. Scroll down and tap Keyboard → Now tap Keyboard.
Step # 3. Tap on Add New Keyboard → Scroll down and choose Emoji.
How to Use Emoji on an iPhone or iPad
Step # 1. Open Applications such as Messages, Notes, etc. Tap the Emoji icon on the left for spaces to access emojis.
Step # 2. When you’re done with Emoji, just tap on ABC to return to the text keypad.
While everything just works, you can’t change things here to add more emoticons to the emoji keyboard. Make sure you check everything: You can swipe to scroll through the list of emojis, and you can tap the tab for a different collection of emojis.
You can use emojis almost everywhere. I mean, wherever there will be buttons and typing, you can switch to an emoji keyboard.
Also, if you see the Memoji Sticker to the left of the emoji and you don’t like it, you have an easy option to get rid of the Memoji Sticker on the iPhone.
