Are you tired of seeing the same old avatar on your iPhone? Well, you’re in luck!

In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of changing your iPhone avatar to something fresh and exciting. Get ready to give your iPhone a personal touch with a new avatar that truly represents you!

Step 1: Accessing Settings

The first step is to access the settings on your iPhone. To do this, locate and tap on the Settings icon on your home screen.

Step 2: Finding Your Apple ID

In the Settings menu, scroll down until you find your Apple ID. Tap on it to proceed.

Step 3: Choosing Your Avatar

Once you’ve entered your Apple ID settings, look for the Name, Phone Numbers, Email section. Tap on it to continue.


If you haven’t set up a profile picture or avatar before, this section might be empty. In that case, skip to Step 4 where we will guide you through adding a new photo.

Step 4: Updating Your Avatar

In the Name, Phone Numbers, Email section, tap on the circular avatar placeholder image to update it.


If there is already an existing photo or avatar in place that you want to change, tap on it and proceed directly to Step 5.

Step 5: Choosing from Existing Photos

A pop-up menu will appear with options for choosing an existing photo. You can either select a photo from your Photo Library, use a Live Photo, or pick an image from your iCloud Drive.


If you want to use a photo that is not in your Photo Library, make sure it is saved in your iCloud Drive or available as a Live Photo.

Step 6: Customizing Your Avatar

After selecting a photo, you will be prompted to position and customize your avatar. Use the pinch-to-zoom gesture to resize and position the image exactly how you want it.


You can also adjust the circular frame size by dragging its edges. The circular frame represents how your avatar will appear on various Apple services and apps.

Step 7: Saving Your Changes

Once you are satisfied with your new avatar, tap on the Done button located in the top-right corner of the screen.


You have successfully changed your iPhone’s avatar! Now, whenever you see your Apple ID displayed, your new avatar will be there to represent you.

Changing your iPhone’s avatar is a fun and simple way to personalize your device. Whether you choose a photo of yourself, a favorite pet, or any other image that brings a smile to your face, having a unique avatar adds a touch of personality to every interaction with your iPhone.

  • Note: The changes made to your iPhone’s avatar will reflect across all Apple devices using the same Apple ID.
  • Note: You can always revisit these settings at any time and change or update your avatar whenever you want.

We hope this tutorial has been helpful in guiding you through the process of changing your iPhone’s avatar. Enjoy your newly customized iPhone and have fun exploring more ways to make it truly yours!
