    A month or so back, the ❤️ emoji on my phone started showing up like this whenever I select it: ♥.

    The symbol in the emoji menu is still big and red; but when I trigger it (add to text), it appears black and smallish. The reason I was able to type the regular red heart above is because I'm on my iPad. It won't work on my iPhone.

    Now here's the kicker: I happened to switch to a new phone last week, and it's still happening on the new phone! (I restored iCloud backup from my previous phone.) Do I have to wipe / set up as new just to fix this weird little problem, lol?

    I have this issue on my Mac. On my iPhone it appears normal. No idea what caused it.

    Guess what? I just fixed it: ❤️ (typing from my phone)

    I realized that the heart emoji in my "Frequently Used" section (which is where I always trigger it from) didn't even quite look like the "real" emoji... it's red, but sort of darker and shaded, without the white highlights at the top. So I found the "real" emoji deep in the menu itself, and it worked like always. Now both versions show up in my Recents section.

    Then I dug deeper and found how the "Heart of Darkness" got there in the first place... it's a different emoji, from deeper in the Symbols section – the group with the playing-card suits (see pic).

    One of them's a 'Card Heart' and the other's just a 'Heart'.
