Clear communication is what the iPhone is all about, and Apple has paid a great deal of attention to its capabilities in iOS 17. With a whole host of communication updates comes a new and improved version of Stickers. While you can already take a subject from a photo and use it as a sticker, iOS 17 allows you to use Live Photos, making fun and interactive animated stickers.

The updated feature places all of your stickers into one place, making them easier to access, and now stickers and emojis can be resized and rotated for more interactive messaging. To break it all down here's a quick guide that'll help you master the updated Stickers feature.
