New Animoji in iOS 12.2: Giraffe, Shark, Owl and Boar

by Will Head

Apple has added four new animated characters that track your face on newer fullscreen iPhones in iOS 12.2

To see the new characters, check Settings > General > Software Update shows iOS 12.2

To access Animoji, start a message then click the Monkey icon above the keyboard. Expand the pane by tapping at the top

The giraffe has expressive ears that follow the movement of your eyebrows

The owl has huge eyes and a tiny beak

The boar has large tusks and ears you can wiggle

The shark has a full body, unlike the other floating heads
