Apple has finally released its latest software update iOS 12 for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices on Monday. The new upgrade comes with new features like 70% faster swipe to camera, faster app launch among others.
One of the major features that iOS 12 brings to iPhone X and above is the Memoji. These are the customised Animojis of oneself to match mood and personality. The Memojis can be used both in messages and FaceTime as well. The feature goes live once the iOS 12 is installed. Wondering how to use the new feature, here’s how to go about it.
To create a Memoji
Open a message conversation and tap on the Animoji icon.
Tap the ‘+’ icon. You may have to scroll to the right before the ‘+’ icon finally shows up.
Now, customise the Memoji by adjusting skin color, hairstyle, eyes, nose and other facial features. Changes get reflected in real time.
Make as many Memoji as you wish to and tap done.
To use a Memoji in Messages
To send the created Memoji, open the conversation, tap the Animoji icon.
Next choose the Memoji you wish to send and look into your iPhone and record the message.
Send the Memoji with recorded message.
To use a Memoji in Facetime

When the call starts, tap the starred icon.
Tap the Memoji that you want to use.
