    Update the list of Emojis in iPhone 5C
    My wife has an old iPhone 5C with IOS 10.3.3, which is the latest it can take.

    She uses WhatsApp a lot and people with newer phones use Emojis she hasn't got and she just gets a '?' from them instead.

    Is it possible to update the Emojis on her iPhone to what is now available on IOS 12 someway?

    Some emojis used on non-Apple phones also may not show up on an iPhone (get the ??) simply due to incompatability. I have an iPhone & wife has an android phone...and a fair amount of the time when I get emojis from her they are displayed as "?" &"??". Even on android phones when a text is sent with an emoji...it gives a warning that all emoji's may not be compatible with all phones. Thus issue is not always related to iOS version.

    Just something to consider when trying to solve this.

    Thanks. I did wonder about that as one of my daughters uses an android phone. Mind you my iPhone is a later model than my wifes and runs IOS 12 and I'm pretty sure I don't suffer from ? replacing emojis.

    I'll have to do some testing.

    Good deal. Sounds like you both have iPhones...I wasn't 100% sure that was the case from post #1.

    I thought one was supposed to be able to install other emojis and emoji keyboards and even using some third-party alternatives???

    And I guess not many are jailbreaking their iPhones these days, especially just to use some emojis.

    Thanks very much for the links. They were most helpful and appear to hold the solution.
