iOS Emoji Copy and Paste: How to Get iOS Emojis on Android

Devendra Chande

Emojis have become an integral part of digital communication in the modern world. The cute and expressive icons help convey emotions and meaning in a simple yet effective way.

While Android and iOS both have their own set of default emojis, many users prefer the aesthetics, design, and variety offered by iOS emojis. If you use an Android phone but want to access iOS emojis, there are a few methods you can try.

Here’s how to get iOS emojis on Android.

Copy-Paste Emojis from iOS

You can copy the iOS emojis from a reference website like Emojipedia and paste them into chats on your Android. Sites like GetEmoji also allow easy copying of emojis.

However, the pasted emojis will render in Android’s default emoji style. But the characters will remain the same.

This lets you use iOS-exclusive emojis on Android devices. You just need to copy-paste them whenever you want to use iOS emojis.

Copy From iPhone

One of the easiest and most practical methods to copy and paste iOS emojis from an iPhone, if you have one.

I have two phones and I prefer iOS emojis over my Samsung phone. So, when I need iOS emojis, I copy them from my iPhone and send them to my Android phone.

This might be useful for everyone who only prefers using Android. However, if you have two devices, this is the best method for you.

Install Third-Party Keyboard Apps

Another easiest method is to install a third-party emoji keyboard app from the Google Play Store. Popular options include:

  • Kika Keyboard
  • Gboard
  • SwiftKey
  • Emoji>
  • Bitmoji

These keyboard apps offer iOS-style emojis along with cool themes, stickers, GIFs, and other customization options.


  1. Install the emoji keyboard app from the Play Store
  2. Enable the app as your keyboard input method
  3. Switch to the installed keyboard when typing
  4. Access iOS emojis from the emoji button

This method doesn’t require root access. However, the emoji design may not be exactly the same as iOS.

Use Emoji Font Apps

Certain Android devices allow installing custom fonts. Apps like Emoji Fonts for FlipFont 10 replace the default Android emoji font with one that resembles the iOS emoji design.

However, this method only works if your Android OS supports changing the system font.


  1. Install Emoji Fonts for FlipFont 10
  2. Go to Settings => Display => Font Style
  3. Choose the iOS emoji font option
  4. The app will replace the default Android emoji font

This gives you access to iOS-style emojis without rooting your device.

This is how you can copy iOS emojis and paste them on your Android devices. If you are comfortable with third-party keyboards, you can use them as they are quick to access. If you don’t prefer using such keyboards, copy-paste from emoji sites would be the best option for you.
