Apple Releases Four iMessage Animated Sticker Packs For iOS 10
It seems Apple is moving its text messaging app into the territory of Snapchat and Facebook messenger, adding not only stickers and animated emoji, but text bubble effects, handwriting, and an API for developers.
However, at this current point in time, the animated emojis and sticker packs for iOS 10 is not available for everyone. Only testers who’s iOS devices are running on iOS 10 beta are capable of installing them. Nonetheless, Apple will soon launch the emoji and sticker pack for iOS 10 public beta testers as well.
The four sticker packs that are available in the App Store are Classic Mac, Hands, Hearts, and Smileys, although the Classic Mac stickers are already present in a stock installation of iOS 10 and aren’t necessary to install unless you’ve removed them already.
