With Apple‘s annual WWDC conference set to begin today, the tech giant has dropped a new Animoji trailer via its official YouTube channel. Originally released to the Korean market last month, the clip shows the bear emoji singing “Citizen Kane” by Korean band HYUKOH, with back-up from the dragon and chicken.
The timing of the advert could be seen is as a hint that Animoji updates are to be announced during the conference. Speculation has been mounting for a while, with some believing that a series of new characters will be added and the function will be extended to FaceTime and the iPad. These upgrades would tie in with the news of iOS 12 — which is expected to be announced during the five-day event — and will begin to release in Fall 2018.
There is also speculation that the new iPhone SE could be announced during WWDC.
