If you're at all interested in Apple's new iPhone X — which was released today, Nov. 3 — then I'm sure you're familiar with some of the new technology that you'll find in the latest iPhone. One of the biggest changes is the addition of facial recognition technology. If you know nothing else about what this new technology does, just know that it is what makes Animojis possible. To understand more about these new animated emojis, just take a look at these tweets about iPhone X Animojis.
One of the biggest changes coming with the new iPhone X is the use of Face ID in place of the Touch ID. There is no home button on the iPhone X. Instead, the new facial recognition technology will unlock your phone with just one look at the front-facing camera. That's not all this make-you-feel-like-a-spy technology is good for, though.
Facial recognition technology is also here to give your emojis a serious upgrade. Emojis are probably my second-most used form of communication in iMessages, right behind GIFs (words are pretty much a last resort). With the advent of Animojis, you might just find your GIF usage going way down, because these new Animojs are basically the best combination of GIFs and emojis.
How do Animojis work, exactly? Well, you use the front-facing camera with the facial recognition technology to record yourself, and then you can see your very own facial movements applied to your favorite emoji. So, instead of just sending a cute puppy emoji, you can send your bestie a puppy Animoji sporting your smile to show just how happy you really are. OK, it might sound a little odd at first, but once you see it, you'll be blown away.
Just look at all of the people taking to Twitter to show how amazed they are with the new iPhone X Animojis.
