The Bitmoji keyboard app for your iPhone lets you send fun images to people via text message. A Bitmoji is a cartoonized version of yourself that you create through the app, then you can select one of the various images available and send it to someone in a similar fashion to how you would send an emoji.
But you may have set up Bitmoji before you were really familiar with the app, and you might find now that you would prefer to use a different avatar style than the one you initially selected. Fortunately you are able to change your avatar style in the Bitmoji app by following the steps in our tutorial below.
How to Modify Your Bitmoji Style on an iPhone
The steps in this article were performed on an iPhone 7 Plus in iOS 11.3. This guide assumes that you have already installed the Bitmoji app and completed the initial avatar design, but that you have decided you want to use a different style than the one that you initially selected.
Step 1: Open the Bitmoji app.
Step 2: Touch the gear icon at the top-left corner of the screen.
Step 3: Select the Change Avatar Style option at the top of the screen.
Step 4: Scroll through the different styles, then tap the Use This Style button under the one you want to use.
If you want to change more than just the style of the avatar, then you will need to reset the avatar instead and start from scratch. You can find the option to reset your avatar by choosing My Account on the menu in Step 3 above, then tapping the Reset Avatar button.
