The most whimsical new feature in the new version of iOS is called “Memoji.”
Since last year, Apple’s high-end phones have allowed you to transform your face into a cartoon character, and control it with your eyes and mouth. Now, in iOS 12, you can even customize a version for your own face, kind of like Snap’s Bitmoji on steroids.
It’s not a productivity feature, but it’s a lot of fun.
However, it can be tricky to find. It’s not an app, for example — it’s basically hidden inside the iPhone’s messaging features. If you’ve ever used Animoji, the feature that lets your face control an emoji character, it’s pretty similar.
Read on for how to use Memoji:
You’ll need an iPhone X, or one of the forthcoming iPhone XS and iPhone XR phones. That’s because Memoji uses Apple’s 3D front-facing camera.
The notch up top is essential for the ‘moji software, Apple says.
In addition to making sure you have the right equipment, you also need to update your iPhone to iOS 12
If you need help updating, we have instructions here.
To find Memoji, fire up Messages. The Animoji and Memoji app is inside the app strip at the top of the keyboard.
