Did you know that you can now create Memojis right from your wrist with the help of your Apple Watch? Indeed, you can now create, edit, and delete Memojis without using your paired iPhone out of the pocket, you can do it all right from Apple Watch.

Memoji was originally introduced alongside the release of iOS 12 back in 2018 as an extension of the Animoji feature that released the year before. Since then this feature has received upgrades in the form of Memoji stickers that have been widely used by iMessage users across Apple devices. However, the ability to make a new Memoji had been limited to iPhones and iPads initially, but with the recent macOS and watchOS updates, Memojis can now be created on your Apple Watch and Mac too.

    Great article, thanks.
    There are some weird formatting issues whereby starting with the first bullet the text is dimmed and appears to be a html link to page not found… all the text and images are dimmed (on iPad safari) up until ‘if you’re interested you can learn more about’ at which point its followed by a hyperlink to another article, and formatting resumes normal appearance.
    Anyhow I was able to read the article by switching to reader view.
