iOS10 Messaging Features Will Kick Facebook's Butts. Here's How

This year’s Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) is started already since June 13. One of the outstanding announcements already in this event is iOS 10, the biggest iOS release ever.

The iOS operating system will bring about great changes for Apple especially for its iMessages app. The iMessaging app may serve a big blow to all the works Facebook to improve on Facebook messaging and texting app.

What iOS 10 offers for the messaging app

“Emojify” is one of the new features that will come along with the iPhone update. This feature will suggest words to be replaced  by emojis. Is this really something good? This is what Apple Senior VP said about the feature during the conference “Children of tomorrow will have no understanding of the English language”. Until tomorrow comes for us to evaluate the children.

The “invisible link” is another new feature. This feature gives the ability to send messages and photos that can only be revealed fingers are swiped over them.

Thinking it’s finished? Not yet. The “digital touch” feature will be very handy. With this feature, which turns the keyboard area into mini sketchpad,  you will be able to make simple sketches of photos with your fingers. With your fingers, you will be able to share music with your friends directly from an iMessage. Is this not wonderful?

The “bubble effects” feature, which let you customize your messages with bigger or smaller texts or messages that come in with a slamming effect.

It’s not over yet. iMessage will get applications that will allow you to further add features and functions to the app.

Could this pack that Apple is offering be the killer blow to Facebook?

Other new features revealed during presentations include;

A smarter lock screen. Though not quite new as Apple is playing it, the good thing is they are finally landing on iDevices.

3D touch and widgets. You will be able to press and hold firmly on app icons to bring up widgets.

Apple Music. The new approach looks much more cleaner and simpler than it was before. While listening to music, you will be able to view lyrics.
