Since iOS 13 and iPadOS you can use Memoji stickers , not only in the Messages application, but also in WhatsApp , Mail, word processors and more. But not everyone is waiting for this addition and would prefer to hide the Memoji stickers in the keyboard.
When you activate the emoji keyboard , you will see the last used stickers under ‘most recent’. You can find these next to your recently used emojis. Because the sticker option takes up almost half of the screen, this can be disturbing. Fortunately, you can permanently disable the Memoji stickers in the keyboard.
Remove memoji stickers from the keyboard
- Open Settings app
