After getting started with Memoji in iOS 12, you might be wondering how to go further with the fun feature. Follow along for how to edit, duplicate, and delete Memoji on iPhone X, XS, and XR.

Whether you’d like to change up a Memoji you’ve previously made or build a new one based on an existing one, read on below.

iOS 12: How to edit, duplicate, and delete Memoij on iPhone

  1. Open Messages
  2. Tap the animoji icon icon
  3. Find the Memoji you’d like to edit, duplicate, or delete
  4. Tap more icon in the bottom left corner

Here’s how the process looks:

When you’re finished editing, tap Done in the top right corner, or use cancel to revert to the previous design.

As the name suggests, Duplicate makes a copy of your Memoji and immediately pulls it up in edit mode. Tapping Delete will give you a warning with a second confirmation needed to permanently remove a Memoji.
