Can’t see the iPhone profile picture you normally have in Settings section or App Store section? In this guide, I will explain how to fix that problem and see the image again. This image personifies your presence as an iPhone user. The same image that you see in the iPhone settings profile image is synced with iCloud and there you can also see the same image as the profile avatar.

Due to certain technical inconveniences, sometimes users cannot see the profile photo that they had previously uploaded or even when they just upload one to the Apple ID in the iOS Settings app.

This is not the easiest or fastest route to modifying your Apple ID, but it is an option. Open the Settings app and follow the steps below.

  • Touch the name of your Apple ID account.
  • Tap the profile picture placeholder.
  • Select Take Photo to take a photo with your iPhone or iPad camera. Or select Choose Photo to choose a pre-existing photo or image from your device’s photo library. Browse option allows you to choose images from Files app and cloud storage accounts like iCloud Drive, Google Drive, etc. Then select or take a photo and proceed to the next step.
  • Use the built-in photo editor to adjust and resize the image and tap Choose to continue. The image or photo is now your Apple ID photo. Also, the new image will be reflected on all other devices connected to your Apple ID account, as long as they have an active internet connection.

Change the Apple ID picture by editing your contact card

This method offers you robust image selection options. For example, you can choose to use emojis, Memojis, or custom text as your Apple ID profile picture from your contact card.

Alternatively, tap on the happy face emoji to choose a preferred emoji from your iPhone or iPad emoji keyboard. Finally, the Pencil icon allows you to use custom texts or initials as your image.
  • Touch Done to proceed with saving the new image. Check the Apple ID menu in the Settings app, or check your iCloud devices to confirm if the new image is showing on all your Apple devices. The iOS Contacts app has elegant customization options that allow you to bring your Apple ID picture to life. You can change the style of the image, modify the background color, and add a filter.

Change Apple ID picture on Mac

If you have multiple Apple devices with the same Apple ID, you just have to change the account image on one of the devices. Apple will sync and update the new photo on other connected devices.
