Install iPadOS 14.4 for New Emojis
If you use emoji when chatting with friends and family, and you skipped iPadOS 14.3 and iPadOS 14.2, you'll want to install iPadOS 14.4.
iPadOS 14.2 brought over 100 new emoji characters to the iPad's keyboard. The list includes ninja, smiling face with tear, disguised face, lungs, beaver, dodo, and a whole lot more.
Unfortunately, the only way you'll be able to use, and see, these characters in messages is via iPadOS 14.2, iPadOS 14.3, or iPadOS 14.4.
If you don't have iPadOS 14.4, iPadOS 14.3, or iPadOS 14.2 installed, the characters will show up as a weird symbol when your friends send them to you in a conversation.
