Apple added an animoji karaoke video to its main YouTube channel as it geared up for Monday’s Worldwide Developers Conference.
Animoji: Taxi Driver sees the bear taking the leading vocalist role, backed by the dragon and chicken, for Citizen Kane by Korean group Hyukoh.
Additional animoji — animated emoji — are expected to be among the new features highlighted on iOS 12, which will almost certainly be teased at WWDC. The bear and dragon were added with iOS 11.3 in March.
Animoji arrived with the iPhone X and its front-facing True Depth camera, which is used for facial recognition. Users’ expressions are transferred to the digital world using thousands of data points.
