Are you tired of using the same old emojis on your iPhone? Well, you’re in luck! Updating emojis on your iPhone is a breeze, and in this tutorial, we’ll guide you through the process step by step.

Step 1: Check for Software Updates

Before updating your emojis, make sure that your iPhone’s software is up to date. To do this, go to Settings > General > Software Update. If there’s an update available, tap on ‘Download and Install’.

Step 2: Open the App Store

Once your software is up to date, open the App Store on your iPhone.

Step 3: Search for Emoji Updates

In the App Store’s search bar, type ’emoji updates’ and hit enter. You’ll see a list of apps that offer new emoji collections.

Step 4: Choose an Emoji App

Browse through the different apps and read their descriptions and reviews. Once you’ve found an app that looks promising, tap on it to open its page.

Step 5: Install the Emoji App

To install the emoji app on your iPhone, tap on the ‘Get’ button next to its name. If prompted, authenticate with Face ID or Touch ID to proceed with the installation.

Step 6: Access New Emojis

Once the app is installed, open it from your home screen. Some apps may require you to enable full access in settings before you can use their emojis.

To do this, go to Settings > General > Keyboard > Keyboards. Tap on the app’s name and toggle on the ‘Allow Full Access’ option.

Step 7: Start Using New Emojis

Congratulations! You’ve successfully updated your emojis.

Open any app that uses the default iOS keyboard, such as Messages or Notes. Tap on the emoji icon to bring up the emoji keyboard, and you’ll see the new emojis offered by the app you installed.


  • If you want to remove an emoji app in the future, go to Settings > General, scroll down and tap on ‘Keyboard’. Then, select ‘Keyboards’, swipe left on the app’s name, and tap on ‘Delete’.
  • New emojis may not be compatible with older versions of iOS. Ensure that your iPhone’s software is always up to date to enjoy the latest emojis.

Updating emojis on your iPhone is a simple process that allows you to express yourself in a whole new way. So go ahead, give it a try, and have fun with your enhanced emoji collection!
