first time I saw this way is here and the original thread was here.
This mod will replace your current "flat" KitKat emoji with Apple emoji. Here is the instruction by angelsel :

(remember to backup your current fallback_fonts.xml before do this.)

1. Grab AppleColorEmoji.ttf and place it into /system/fonts/
2. Set /system/fonts/AppleColorEmoji.ttf to have permissions 644 (rw-r--r--) and owner:group root:root.
3. Modify /system/etc/fallback_fonts.xml like so:
find :

Code:
    <family>
        <fileset>
            <file>AndroidEmoji.ttf</file>
        </fileset>
    </family>
screenshot
before


Above this block, add

Code:
    <family>
        <fileset>
            <file>AppleColorEmoji.ttf</file>
        </fileset>
    </family>
screenshot
after


4. Set /system/etc/fallback_fonts.xml to have permissions 644 (rw-r--r--) and owner:group root:root.
5. Reboot.

if you enjoy it, give Thanks to angelsel for the instruction here at his own original thread [MOD] Apple Color Emoji system-wide for KitKat

and if anyone have installed keyboard that make by Shaftamle, you must rename the "AppleColorEmoji.ttf" to "NotoColorEmoji.ttf"
and the original "NotoColorEmoji.ttf" rename to "NotoColorEmoji.bak" just in case you want to use old emoji back.
set permission to rw-r-r and reboot.

Why would I double copy the thread...?
I've already did the flashable zips of Apple and Samsung emojis here:

Moreover there's app that does all that process easily here:

I think that if you only want iPhone emojis, you can avoid installing a nearly 50mb app for LG and S4 emoji sets that you probably will never use...
