Send Handwritten Messages On iPhone in iOS 10
Apple’s iOS 10 update brought many new features to the Messaging app like Multilingual Typing, Bigger Emojis, Screen Effects, Read Receipts for Individual Contacts, Replace Words with Emojis, and others.
The ability to send Handwritten Messages is another iOS 10 feature that can enhance your Messaging experience by bringing back the nostalgia of Handwritten Messages.
As you can see from the steps below, sending Handwritten Messages on your iPhone or iPad is really easy.
1. Open the Messages app on your iPhone.
2. On the next screen, tap on the Contact to whom you would like to send a Handwritten Message.
3. Next, tap on the Message box to bring up the keyboard (See image below)
4. Once the keyboard appears, Flip or Rotate your phone into Landscape Mode and tap on the Handwriting key that you will see at the bottom right corner of the On-screen Keyboard (See image below).
5. Once you tap on the Handwriting key, you will see a white Sketch Board with some pre-made Handwritten Messages like Hello, Thank you and others at the bottom of the Sketch Board (See image below)
6. You can either select from one of the available pre-made Handwritten Messages by tapping on them or write your own Handwritten Message on the Sketch Board by using your fingers (See image below).
As you can see in the image above, you can tap on Undo, in case you happen to make a mistake while writing your Message on the White Board. In case you need more space for writing your Message, you can tap on the Arrow icon and continue writing your Message on the next screen.
7. Once you are happy with the Handwritten Message, you can tap on Done (See image in step 6). This takes you to the regular iMessage screen where you can add to the Message in regular type-written mode or send your Message by tapping on the Send Button (See image below)
