All emojis can be used as stickers in the Messages app. Of course, you can still use your Memoji stickers and any downloaded packs and they will show up separately. While this is a fun feature in itself, it gets better.

mobile to buy?

Apple is also letting you make your own stickers using the iOS 16 feature that lets users remove the subject from the background of the photos. You can not only do this to any images in the Photos app but also those in Safari and other locations. Now, when you long press on the subject, an options menu appears that lets you add it as a sticker.

Once added, it will show up in the stickers interface. You can also add effects such as puff-up, glitter, and more. The best part? Picking the subject from Live Photos will let you save the subject as an animated sticker.

This new addition is sure to make using stickers more fun.
