In addition to Bubble effects and new Emojis, Apple has added the Screen Effects feature in iOS 10. Let us take a look at how to spice up your Messages by sending an iMessage with Screen Effects from your iPhone or iPad.
Send iMessage With Screen Effects On iPhone and iPad
1. Open the Messages app on your iPhone or iPad.
2. Start a new message or reply to an existing Message thread.
3. Whenever you want to insert a screen effect, hard press on the Send button (upward arrow button).
4. You will land on a screen with two options: Bubble and Screen. Tap on Screen.
5. While on the screen tab, you can choose from following five different types of Screen Effects by swiping on the screen.
Balloons: All kids and grown ups with a kid in them love balloons. You can send balloons in a variety of colours using screen effects feature in iOS 10.
Shooting Stars: This screen effect produces a star burst that travels from left to right on your iPhone screen.
Lasers: You will be creating an impression of lasers and sound on the screen, when you use the Lasers effect.
Fireworks: Just like Balloons, Fireworks are popular with everyone. The Fireworks screen effect produces multi-colour fireworks at the centre of your iPhone screen.
Confetti: This screen effect produces an impressive shower of multi-colour confetti from the top of your iPhone screen.
6. After choosing your desired Screen Effect, tap on the Send button to send your iMessage with Screen Effects.
Cancel Screen Effect in iMessage on iPhone or iPad
You cannot expect everyone to be playful and fun loving like you. It is not uncommon to come across people who think receiving colourful balloons, fireworks and confetti in messages is downright silly.
In case you are having second thoughts after sending an iMessage with Screen effects, you can easily cancel the Screen effects in your iMessage.
1. After sending the iMessage with Screen effects, you will see an “X’’ button under the upward arrow on the screen effect.
2. Simply tap on “X” button to cancel the screen effect in the iMessage that you had recently sent.
