Memojis: A strange new way to flirt
Perhaps the most fun new feature is the “memoji,” an animoji (animated emoji cartoon) that can be customized to look like anyone. Apple also added four new animoji characters — a ghost, koala, tiger and T-rex — with wink and tongue detection.
But the animoji features only work on the X lines of iPhones. They require the face-detection cameras.
Apple also introduced new camera features like stickers, but only if you’re using the camera directly from the Messages app. It’s not a thing I do regularly, so I mostly forget it exists except when writing articles about the Messages app.
