Do you have your own custom Memoji that you use to express yourself while texting your friends on iMessage? If so, perhaps you’ll want to add a face mask to your Memoji, considering the situation.
With COVID-19 spreading and many people wearing masks in public or at work, there has been a general change in behavior. You may be used to meeting your friends and colleagues wearing masks already as part of the new “normal.” Let’s talk about masks for a minute. If you have a Memoji, then this feature may interest you. Apple has added the ability to cover your Memoji’s face with a mask, so if you want to give it a mask, read along, and we will teach you how.
How to Add a Face Mask to Memoji on iPhone
The first thing you’ll need to do is create your own Memoji. Once you’re done, make sure your iOS or iPadOS is at 14 or later since earlier versions don’t support Memoji.
1. Launch the “Messages” app from your device’s home screen and select any message thread.
2. Under the text field, tap on the Memoji icon located to the right of the image search tool, as shown in the screenshot below.
3. Create your own custom Memoji using the features we mentioned. Tap on the triple-dot icon right next to it and then swipe left or right, and you’ll see your newly created one.
4. This will take you to the Memoji customization menu. To proceed, tap on “Edit
5.”. Now, go to the “Headwear” category and scroll down to the bottom.
6. Now, you’ll find the Face Covering section. There are two different types of masks to choose from, and you can even select your preferred color for the mask. Once selected, tap on “Done” to save your changes.
Apple’s Memoji feature is only available on the latest iPhone models. If you have a Face ID device, you can use it since it needs to track your facial expressions. However, if you own an older iPhone without a Face ID, you can wear a Memoji mask with stickers that can be bought on the App Store.
Although we were primarily speaking about the iPhone, you can follow these steps to customize your Memoji and add a face mask to it on an iPad too. You’ll need an iPad Pro with Face ID support.
Face coverings aside, Memoji also has a range of customization options, including new hairstyles, headwear styles, and age options. Plus, three new Memoji stickers let you send a hug, fist bump, or even a bump while texting.
