Apple iOS 14 Will Add Face Mask Option to Memoji
As PPE becomes the new normal amidst the coronavirus pandemic.
The COVID-conscious feature, part of Apple’s recently announced iPhone operating system iOS 14, is a timely addition as wearing face coverings in public becomes the norm. Several states across the U.S. — including California, where Apple is based — have even mandated that face masks be worn in public to minimize the spread of COVID-19.
As revealed by Twitter account @emojipedia, Memoji in iOS 14 will also introduce 20 new headwear, hairstyle and age options. @emojipedia also tweeted a sneak peek of three new Memoji stickers: a fist bump, a virtual hug and a blushing reaction.
Apple has not yet announced a release date for iOS 14, likely to be sometime this fall alongside the rumored iPhone 12.
