Apple leadership memojified

July 17, 2018.

Apple executive profiles.

Tuesday July 17 was World emoji Day, and to celebrate, Apple emojified its entire leadership team. From Tim Cook to Eddy Cue, through Craig Federighi and Jonathan Ive, every last director was replaced by memojis, avatars that can be personalised to turn people into emojis. Memojis came out with iOS 12 and can be animated with iPhone X’s Face ID. But that’s not all: Apple also unveiled over 70 new emojis that will be added this year to iOS 12, watchOS 5 and macOS Mojave. The new emoji designs, based on approved characters in Unicode 11.0, include new hair options to better represent the differently-haired: red, grey, curly, or none at all.

The Verge, “Apple replaced its executive portraits with Memoji.”
