How to Search for Emoji on iPhone or iPad

Most of the time when I typed messages on my iPhone and looking for a specific Emoji, but I keep swiping and looking for it in the list of Emojis and couldn’t find it. Apple added the Emoji search feature so people like me can easily search the right Emoji by typing in the search field.

If you are a Mac user as well then emoji search is already available on it and the most requested feature finally added in the iOS 14 for iPhone and iPad. As compared to other iOS 14 and iPadOS new features, this emoji search feature isn’t a big improvement but will have a big impact to facilitate the users of iOS devices.

So, let’s see how we can search the emoji on the iPhone or iPad while running any app where you can use the keyboard. But, before following the given steps below make sure Emoji are enabled from the keyboard settings.
