    If I send him a 👼🏼or something else, he gets the Angel and also an alien head in a square box!! I am trying to copy and paste it from the text s that we send each other! That picture is not part of the pictures I have on my phone or in his either! What is it? Why does he get it and what is the meaning of that?

    Are you using Snapchat or one of those picture other picture exchanging programs that have funny overlays? Maybe you accidentally turned this feature on?

    Does your BF use an iPhone as well? If not he could possibly be seeing an "alien" because it's an emoji that his non-iPhone doesn't recognize. That has been my experience in the past at least.

    Welcome to iMore! Your boyfriend's phone is using an outdated version of Unicode (this is what makes emojis show as emojis instead of code). What operating system is your boyfriend using on his phone (i.e. iOS 9, Android marshmallow, etc.)? Have him update to whatever the latest version is that is available for his device and it should work. Android just recently updated its Unicode version to show the newer emojis.
