How To Shrink The Large Emojis In The Messages App In iOS 10

With iOS 10 release, Apple has super-sized all of the Emojis that user send and receive via iMessage whenever they’re used without any complementary text. But if you want to shrink the large Emojis in the Messages app in iOS 10 it can be possible if your device is jailbroken. New Cydia release dubbed as Littlemoji returns Emojis back to their pre-iOS 10 size.

How To Make Emojis Smaller On iOS 10 iPhone

As you probably recall with iOS 9 and earlier, Emojis that were sent and received were the same size as any other line of text you would see in the Messages app. Thanks to that, they would actually fit inside of the chat bubbles coming from and going to your recipient.

So in order to get the ability to shrink the large Emojis in the Messages app in iOS 10 head to Cydia and download Littlemoji for free on your jailbroken iOS 10 device. 

As the tweak works with iOS 10, it supports devices that have been jailbroken with Luca Todesco’s Yalu jailbreak, which is currently in beta. Because the it’s not completely stable yet and it doesn’t support all devices, it is not recommended to use it at this point in time.

The tweak doesn't have options to configure, so once it is installed any Emoji that you send or receive will not only be resized, but it will also appear inside of a chat bubble just it was on iOS 9 and earlier versions. You can see the result on the top post picture.

But keep in mind that this effect is only going to be seen only on your end. So if you’re text messaging your friend with iOS 10 and you use an Emoji or two, his is going to see the full-sized version while you see the shrunken down version.

Regardless, because not all users are fond of the new super-sized Emojis, Littlemoji tweak does a good job of returning things to the way they were before Apple changed the look and feel of the Messages app in the latest software updates.
