Hello thedmaze2,

Thanks for that info and choosing the Apple Support Communities. If I understand correctly, you are unable to add the emoji keyboard on your iPhone X as it is missing in Settings > General > Keyboards > Add New Keyboard. First, make sure your iPhone is up to date, as the updates contain stability fixes that can resolve issues like yours, as well as important security updates to keep your iPhone safe.

Update the iOS software on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch

Next, go to Settings > General > Restrictions, temporarily turn Restrictions on and restart your device as iOS clears cached data and does other system optimizations when you turn your device off and on. Then turn Restrictions back off and test your issue again.

Restart your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
