iOS 16 Brings New Features for Memoji

With each new major operating system update, Apple continues to improve the Memoji characters that are available in the Messages app and across iOS, and iOS 16 is no exception. There are several new Memoji customization options that Memoji fans should be aware of.

Apple has added six new Memoji sticker poses, including a chef's kiss, a yawn, hands below the chin, dizzy with birds, and more.

There are 17 new and updated hairstyles to work with, including curly styles and updates to box braids and tight curl styles, along with a new bonnet option in the hat section.

There are quite a few new nose options, and a few additional neutral lip colors to choose from.

Apple has also made it possible to use any of the Memoji stickers as your contact image, opening up a number of new options. In iOS 15, only a selection of facial poses worked as a contact image, but in ‌iOS 16‌, all of the stickers are available.

None of these noses look anything like the sun dial on my face.

I still can't believe that Apple doesn't allow you to generate Memoji from a selfie. Back in 2010 Nintendo let you create Miis with the 3DS camera.

Every time I've tried creating a Memoji it either ends up looking like a 13 year old or a 60 year old.

It's a shame that you still cannot customize the quick access buttons on Lock Screen (camera and flashlight);
some of you may submit a feedback to apple too, regarding this downer ;-)

Especially camera is ridiculous since camera can be opened by a single left-swipe
