In addition to ARKit 2.0, Apple unveiled new Animojis alongside new Memoji virtual doppelgangers that compete with the functionality of Samsung's AR Emoji.
The next version of Animoji brings four new characters to Tiger, Koala, Ghost, and t-rex, expanding the entire list to 13 creatures.
In addition, Apple adds tongue recognition to the facial features that the TrueDepth camera can track on the iPhone X. The feature promises some Sass to Messages and will help to faithfully reproduce KISS or Miley Cyrus Performances in Animoji Karaoke.

If Four New Characters Are not Enough iPhone X users can now create their cartoon image called Memoji. Just like Bitmojis, users can customize their hairstyle and accessories, and the saved memoji, like Animojis, will replicate the user's facial movements.
Animojis also come to FaceTime (including group calls), which also provide group video support, in iOS 12. During a live demonstration of a FaceTime call group, Tim Cook showed his own memoji.
