How to Delete Stickers from iMessages on iPhone and iPad

How do you remove stickers from iMessages on iPhone and iPad? Well, it's quite simple to do but the process is slightly hidden. Read on to find out how to get rid of the obstructing stickers without needing to delete the entire pack or the app and do share your thoughts.

Stickers have become one of the hottest ingredients for fun-loving conversation. And I never fail to cash-in-on them to spice up the messaging time—just like many of you! At times, my friends unintentionally (on other times intentionally) place the stickers on a message and hence it becomes slightly inconvenient to read it. But thanks to a simple trick, I can remove the stickers from iMessages on my iOS device to ensure they don’t prevent me from reading messages.

One thing worth mentioning is that it won’t delete the sticker pack nor will it delete the app. This will just get rid of the obstructing sticker.
