iOS 14 adds more options to the photo section of the Contacts app. You can now use an emoji, photo, Memoji or plain text with a custom background color to distinguish between your listed contacts. Previously, iOS users could only add emojis to a contact's name. Here's how to use an emoji as a Contact photo:
Animoji debuted with iOS 11 as fun Messages feature involving animated characters that use your iPhone's front-facing camera to mimic your facial movements and expressions. iOS 12 introduced Memoji which are basically customizable human Animoji. iOS 13 now lets you use both Memoji and Animoji as your profile picture. Not only can you use them as your own avatar, but you can create Animoji and Memoji profile pics for your contacts as well.

There is no simple way to share contact info with iOS. It's not necessarily hard, but it's more than a tap like most shareable features found on your iPhone or iPad. If you're interested in sharing your information, but don't want to share all your details, you can set up a secondary contact card instead of deleting sensitive information on your default card. Before you create a secondary contact card for sharing, make sure you have setup your default contact card.
