Apple unveils Tongue detection alongside four new Animoji

Animoji today received a much-needed update. 

Aside from a host of new Animoji, namely Tiger, Koala, T-Rex, and Ghost, the cutesy animated emoji is getting... Tongue detection. Yes, the three-dimensional Face ID camera of the iPhone X will be capable to detect your tongue and adorn to your virtual emoji. Stick it out and your Animoji will stick it too.

Expect a lot of tongue action this autumn!

But we suspect the four new Animoji will be thrown on the backburner thanks to Memoji, Apple's arguably better-looking answer to Samsung's customizable AR emoji, which were somewhat twitchy and not that flattering. Of course, there was a reason for that, but that's a story for another time.
