Apple strives to make their mobile devices to be useful, and this effort is most noticeable on the latest operating system, where the Animoji and Memoji have fueled that trend by making Messages something big. Animoji uses icons of animals and other objects (the famous poop, for example) as the main reasons. Memoji, derived from the word me in English, extended the functions of Animoji avatars that you can create for that they seem much to you or to someone you know, something like Bitmoji. With Animoji and Memoji you control what you see your friends and contacts when they connect with you. We tell you how to use Memoji in iOS 13.
Birth of the Memojis
All this madness Animoji started with the iPhone X and the debut of the function Animoji in iOS 11. Memoji arose in iOS 12 as a cross between Animoji and avatars, but only worked on models of the iPhone more recent equipped with cameras TrueDepth that could imitate your facial expressions and head movements. This is because using the Face ID of your device to facilitate the creation and recording of the animated messages that look very much like you. That left out those who have iPhone older. Now, with iOS 13, even if you have an older device, you can also have your very own Memoji. The following Memoji created on an iPhone 6S.
With iOS 13, Memoji is available on iPhones older who do not have advanced cameras to automatically generate packages from Memoji Sticker that anyone can use in Messages, Mail, and third-party applications. The Memoji also work with Animojis so there are packs of Memoji and Animoji in iOS 13 and iPadOS 13. Although these Memojis are static, there are 24 different that allow you to personalize the emotion you want to express with the avatar. The improvements of the function Memoji in iOS 13 offer new options of color of skin, facial hair, makeup, hairstyles, and add-ons. There are sliders to set the colors of skin and hair, so that you can create combinations of colors unique to your Memoji. New add-ons such as earrings, body piercings, glasses, hats and even AirPods complete the package.

Once you’ve finished, you can tap the record button again to end the recording, but will only appear if you have not used the full 30 seconds. Then you can see the playback once and choose to see you again playing Repeat on the Memoji. If you’re not satisfied, you can tap the trash icon to delete it and try again. To send it, simply tap the blue arrow: the recipient can play it from your window of iMessage once it is delivered, but you can also choose to play it by tapping on the message window.
