Does your iPhone support Memoji stickers?

First came Animoji. Then Apple introduced Memoji. Thanks to iOS 13 and iPadOS 13, we now have Memoji stickers. These new sticker packs are available on more Apple devices than Animoji and Memoji. Still, there's a line in the sand and not every device supports the new feature.

What are Memoji stickers?

Animoji and Memoji are animated characters that can mimic your facial expressions. Memoji stickers, by contrast, are static creations based either on Memoji you've created or a character you've built from scratch. These auto-generated stickers feature emoji-like poses and faces such as star eyes, tears and crying, facepalm, shrugging, and many more.

Where Animoji and Memoji require a TrueDepth camera, Memoji stickers do not. The only requirements are that your device includes an Apple A9 chip or later, and has iOS 13/iPadOS 13 or later installed.
