Starting with iOS 13 (iPadOS 13), mimoji stickers appeared on the virtual keyboard. Now, when you open the emoji keyboard on an iPhone or iPad, you can see a separate section with stickers on the left side of it. This step seems reasonable, except that the stickers replace the panel that recently displayed the last emoji you used.

Starting with iOS 13.3, Apple made it easy for users to disable Memoji stickers on the keyboard. This feature will surely appeal to people who don’t like stickers like this.
