Memoji Lets iPhone Users Make their Own, Self-Styled Animoji
iOS 12 will make iMessage more fun, says Apple, thanks to the addition of Memoji. Similar to the way Samsung's AR Emoji work, the iOS 12 Memoji will let people customize an animated emoji sticker that resembles their face. It offers lots of tools for customizing hair color and style, eye color, accessories such as glasses, and much more. The tool works natively with iMessage and the new FaceTime app so people can dress up their conversations in real-time. The Memoji are animated just like Animoji. This lets people record short clips of their Memoji for sharing with others. The new Memoji will arrive with iOS 12 later this year.
