Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I have an iPhone 6. Will the steps work for me?
A: Unfortunately, the Animoji and Memoji require the face tracking software that is only available on the iPhone X and newer devices. iPhone 6, iPhone 7, and iPhone 8 do not support the feature.

Q: From what I know, the face tracking technology exists on the iPhones 6, iPhone 7, and the iPhone 8. Why can’t they make the Animoji and Memoji available on these devices?
A: Though the technology exists for older iPhone devices, Apple chose to have the Animoji and Memoji only available for iPhone X. There could be a few reasons why Apple chose this and part of this could be to market their newer phone lineup.
