While Memojis – the personalised 3D emojis native to the iPhone and iPad – can be a lot of fun to use, not everyone is into them.

If Memojis aren’t your thing, letting them take up so much space on your emoji keyboard can be annoying. In those cases, it’s probably easier to disable the feature altogether.

While you can just ignore the Memoji options on your keyboard, disabling it will mean Memojis won’t appear as an option, and won’t be available for you to use. You can re-enable the Memoji feature at any time.

Here’s how to complete both options on your iPhone or iPad running iOS 13 or iPadOS.
