Apple decided to go all-in on Messages in iOS 10, fully embracing its inner Facebook Messenger and replacing simplicity with stickers and disappearing text effects.
Messages used to be a really simple app to use. You could add a photo or send an emoji, sure, but that was about it. If you wanted to send stickers or slide someone some cash, that’s what Facebook Messenger, or a host of other apps, were for. Now, Apple has made Messages way more complicated, by adding a load of new capabilities. Instead of just sending text messages and photos, you can now send rich links, little digital drawings, or haptic Digital Touch messages. You can even send stickers.
