Memoji on the iPhone and iPad continue to gain new options for personalization. Due to the ongoing global pandemic, Apple has added face coverings to the mix with iOS 14. Now your Memoji can sport a unique face mask to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Once a face covering is added, all of the Memoji expressions are masked automatically.
Apple has added several new face coverings, hair and headwear styles to Memojis in iOS 14. The new features are to help iPhone and iPad users to reflect a variety of different religions, hobby, profession, and personalities. You can learn how to create a new Memoji here, and how to edit an existing Memoji here, but first, check out some of the new features coming in iOS 14.
If Messages is your goto text messaging app, then you are likely aware of "tapback responses" - the thumbs up/down, heart, "haha", exclamations and question mark stickers that you can respond to messages with. In addition to these stickers, you can respond to messages with Memoji stickers as well. Here's how to do it on iPhone and iPad:
If you aren't a fan of Memoji, the customizable human Animoji, and you are a minimalist, you probably don't want the Memoji stickers showing up in your Messages app, especially since they appear in your frequently used emoji. Up until now you could only hide the sticker pack from the options appearing above the keyboard, but you would still see them in your emoji options. iOS 13.3, however, lets you get rid of them altogether. Here's how to remove Memoji from your Messages app on iPhone and iPad:
Animoji debuted with iOS 11 as fun Messages feature involving animated characters that use your iPhone's front-facing camera to mimic your facial movements and expressions. iOS 12 introduced Memoji which are basically customizable human Animoji. iOS 13 now lets you use both Memoji and Animoji as your profile picture. Not only can you use them as your own avatar, but you can create Animoji and Memoji profile pics for your contacts as well.
