Quick Tip: Removing Memoji and Animoji stickers from your iOS Emoji keyboard

iOS 13.3 is out today with some minor changes, but one that may come as a welcome improvement to many is the ability to hide Memoji and Animoji stickers from your device’s keyboard.

Since the addition of Memoji stickers in iOS 13, they’ve lurked off to the left hand side of your keyboard, shifting the more useful “Frequently Used” section further down. That was the case even if you didn’t use Memoji or Animoji stickers.

In iOS 13.3 you can banish them back to the nether realm from whence they came. Just go to Settings > General > Keyboard, scroll all the way down, and turn off Memoji Stickers. Then, the next time you open your emoji keyboard, you’ll be back to having your Frequently Used emoji at the top of the heap.
