iOS 14 adding new face mask option when creating Memoji
iOS 14 is bringing the option to add a face mask to your customized Memoji character.
Announced within a segment covering the improvements to Messages coming later this year, Apple touted that users will be able to choose from over 20 new hair and headwear styles to reflect their hobby, profession, and personality, with the option to add a facial covering in light of the global COVID-19 outbreak that has seen face masks become mandatory in countries around the world.
Following on with updates inspired by the outbreak, watchOS 7 will add a new automatic handwashing detection feature that will automatically detect handwashing motions and sounds. It then initiates a 20-second countdown timer, and if the user finishes early, they will be prompted to keep washing.
Apple Watch can also conveniently remind the user to wash their hands when they return home.
