Apple’s Fun New iMessage Screen Effects

Monday, October 3rd, 2016 by | Filed Under: iOS, Smartphones

Have you upgraded your iPhone to iOS 10 yet? If so, have you tested out the fun, new effects in iMessage? You can now add moving graphics. Let’s check out how it works.

Type your message as usual, but instead of just tapping that send arrow, press down hard and hold it.


The Send with effect screen will open.  Tap Screen.


Swipe from right to left to try out different effects like balloons that float across the screen.


Or confetti raining down.


Lasers will give you a light show with sound effects.


Choose Fireworks and a rocket will shoot up the screen…


…and then explode.


When you’re happy with the effect, just tap the send arrow.

    Thank you so much for this! Apple seems to come out with a lot of new features that I have no idea how to use. I can always depend on you to show me how 😀

    When I type a message I don’t have a down arrow. Only a green up arrow.
    Is there a setting you have to activate.
