What Is Memoji on iOS 12

On iOS 11, Apple introduced a new feature called Animoji, which is a kind of animated Emoji users can use to interact with others when chatting online. On iOS 12, a more powerful feature comes into being and that’s called Memoji. Besides owning all the features Animoji has, Memoji allows users to customize their facial expressions, to make the Anmoji looks like their own faces. For example, in the toolbar of Memoji, there are options like hairstyle, eyewear, beard, eye, and so on. Since iOS 12 has brought us such an amazing feature, you can’t wait to know how to create Memoji on your iPhone. 


Create A Emoji within Steps

Step 1 Initialize the Face

1.       Go to the Messages on your iPhone.

2.       Choose a conversation.

3.       In the toolbar at the bottom, you will see a monkey head icon. Tap on it.

4.       Slide to the right until you see “+”. Tap on it.

Step2 Customize the Memoji

Your Memoji is set up as a blank face and it’s your imagination that makes it distinctive.

Skin color, freckle, hairstyle, and gender… Just choose whatever you want.

You will begin with the skin color and to move on to other choices, tap on the labels at the top.


In the course of creating a Memoji, you can preview its feature by watching what it looks like when animated. Sometimes, the Memoji may pause a little, but you can restart the animation by tapping on it.

You can save as many Memojis as you want. For example, for yourself, for your families, for your friends, and for your classmates.

Delete/Edit Your Memoji

Since you’ve already known how to set up Memoji, it’s time to learn how to delete or edit Emoji so that it won’t be too much.

1.       Launch the Messages App on your iPhone.

2.       Choose a conversation.

3.       Tap on the monkey head icon in the below toolbar to go to the Memoji menu.

4.       When your personal Memoji appears, tap on “···“ on the lower left.

5.       If you want to edit your profile, tap on “Edit”, and to delete it from your Memoji library, tap on the red button “Delete”.


Easy Steps to Record Your Custom Memoji

Similar to the steps above. Go to the Messages App and tap on the monkey icon. When your image appears, tap on the red round button on the lower right to start recording. When you want to quit, tap on the red stop button again. Now, you can tap on the send button to share your Memoji in the conversation.


Compared with Animoji on iOS 11, Memoji triples the recording length to 30s and also, new faces are added and a much more advanced facial recognition technique is applied which makes the whole process more efficient. Now, it’s time to download iOS 12 beta version and have a try.
