The iOS 10 is the most recent update from Apple. It's a major update that changed a lot of things in the iOS. While it also came with a bunch of other new features, the most notable ones are probably found in the iMessage. As what most iOS users can testify to, the iMessage was probably the simplest messaging app that you can use in the iOS. It was basically like SMS, only that it uses data and not phone credits.

This time, the iMessage is no longer boring. In fact, it may now be one of the best messengers there is. Needless to say, the iMessage only works in Apple devices. So Apple users, here are some of the iOS 10 iMessage tricks that you can try right away:

Customize Your Message Style

First, you can now customize how your message is read by the recipient. You can choose between different modes of delivery. There is the 'slam', 'loud', 'gentle', and 'invisible ink'. These modes allow you to express your feelings through the movement of the texts. If you want your text to appear as if your shouting, choose 'loud' as it will make your message appear huge with a little bit of shaking. The invisible ink allows you to send a message that has a pixelated layer that recipients can swipe off in order to reveal the message.

To make use of this new feature, type in a message and long press the blue arrow. Afterwhich, you can now choose a message style.

Use Confetti And Stickers

Next, you can now throw a confetti or other screen effects at the thread. Just type in a message, long press the blue button, and hit the Screen tab. You can then choose between, balloons, confetti, lasers, fireworks, and shooting star. Furthermore, you can now send fun images and stickers to your friends. In the messaging app, you can hit the App store icon not only to send a cool picture, but to access different apps to integrate to your message as well.

Send A Hand-written Note

Furthermore, you can now also send your friends handwritten messages. Not only would you be able to show an especially written message, your recipient can also see how you wrote it. It's basically a clip showing how you drew that heart or how you wrote that text. PhoneArena also suggests scrolling through default 'handwritten' messages if you don't feel like writing them yourself.

Draw On Photos

If there is one feature that stands out the most, it would probably be the ability to draw on photos that you'll be sending in iMessage. According to CNET, you can use the Markup tool in the iMessage so you can doodle a bit on a photo before sending it out.

These are just some of the cool new additions to the iMessage. Now, you don't have to switch to a different app to have a fun conversation with your friends. What's great about the iMessage in general is that it is integrated with the phones Message inbox, so it doesn't have to load and buffer when you launch it, unlike other messengers.
