Learn How to Use iMessage Stickers

Posted on October 25, 2019

iMessage Stickers were first introduced in iOS10 WAYYY back in 2016. Since that time they have grown in popularity and you can find hundreds of options in the App Store.

You may wonder WHAT iMessage Stickers are though if you haven’t ever used them. The stickers are a way to liven up your iMessages and texts in a that you never could before. The stickers are an addon to iMessage and can be accessed via the icon row just below your main message input area.

To place a sticker into your message:

  • Simply click the icon for the app you’d like to use
  • Scroll till you find the sticker you’d like to share
  • Tap the sticker you want to use and it’ll autopopulate into the iMessage box


You can also layer the stickers over the top of other stickers, videos or photos. For example, put a beard over a photo or give them buggy eyeballs. Stickers also support tapback actions.

The last few years I’ve enjoyed myself quite a bit making a variety of sticker apps.
