Emoji continues to be an important part of the messaging service and Apple caught up with the trend. The size of the emoji will be 3 times bigger than before to increase the attractiveness of users.
iMessage on iOS 10 has the ability to predict emoji matching your words. The conversation is not only enjoyable but also the enhancement of security features: sensitive features will be obscured (invisible ink) and users can open by sliding the hand.
Another feature is indispensable for a messaging application, which can attract young people is the ability to send fun picture inside the iMessage. However, it does not stop here: users can send a message opened full screen in a short time. 5 effects for whole screen and effects for each message (zoom in, zoom out…) allow users to create numerous types of message for angering your friends. However, if users want a strict message as possible, the new iMessage also supports handwriting. Users can send the Digital Touch like on Apple Watch, too.
