How To Make Emojis 3x Bigger in Message App

Emojis have taken an important role in iOS 10. We have already shown you how you can replace words with Emojis. Now we want to show you another trick that is also about iPhone Emojis. They are usually displayed in a way that they match the font size, so that it will not make a huge gap. With a trick, you can make the Emojis 3x bigger! It does not only look awesome, but also inevitably focuses the attention of the receiver on the little, cute faces and icons.


This feature is part of a series of improvements, that Apple sponsored the Message app in iOS 10. Therefore, you will need iOS 10 or later to try this trick in your Message App.

Make Emojis 3x bigger in the Message App

Open any chat in your Message App and tap in the text box to open it. Now open the pre-installed Emoji keyboard by tapping the “globe” icon at the bottom and choose “Emoji”.

Emojis can be displayed bigger, when you send them separately without text. Your iPhone will show a maximum of three bigger Emojis. If you choose four or more, they will be shown in a small size as usual.
Hence, add up to three Emojis without typing in a text and they will be displayed in a clearly bigger size automatically.
Hit “Send” to send send big emojis without any hassle.

They will show up as enlarged emojis on your and on the receiver’s iPhone (as long as this person uses iOS 10 or later).
