With iOS 10, there were many improvements in the Messages App, including ways to express emotion. One of my favorite features is Screen Effects, which fills the screen of the person you send a message to with balloons, confetti, or even fireworks!
These effects will only be seen by other people that have an iPhone 6 or newer. The message will still send, but it will say 'sent with fireworks effect'.
Here's how to add Fireworks to your Messages:
1 - Open the Messages App and type your Message. Press and hold the up arrow.
2 - Select "Screen" at the top of the page
3 - Swipe to the right until you find the Fireworks screen effect
3 - You'll see the Fireworks effect. Select the blue up arrow to send.
Give it a try and add a little sizzle to your Messages this Fourth of July!
