In this tutorial, we will be discussing how to use iMessage stickers on iOS 10. Apple’s iMessage app now allows users to send stickers and animated emojis in addition to regular text messages. We will go over the steps needed to access and use stickers, as well as how to download and install new sticker packs in order to make your iMessage conversations even more fun and expressive.

Understanding iMessage Stickers

When Apple released iOS 10, it introduced a new feature called iMessage stickers. These stickers are essentially digital images that can be sent through the iMessage app. They are a fun way to add a personal touch to your messages and express your emotions in a more creative way. iMessage stickers come in different sizes and shapes, and they can be animated or static.

Finding Stickers

The first step to using iMessage stickers is to find them. There are three ways to discover new stickers:

  1. App Store: There are many sticker apps available in the App Store. You can download these apps and browse through the stickers they offer. Some of the popular sticker apps include Bitmoji, Giphy, and Disney Stickers.

  2. iMessage App Store: You can also access the iMessage App Store directly from the iMessage app. To do this, open iMessage and tap the App Store icon next to the text input field. From there, you can browse through the available stickers and download the ones you like.

  3. Sticker Packs: If someone sends you a sticker that you don’t have, you can tap on the sticker to download the entire pack. This is a great way to discover new stickers and add them to your collection.

Key takeaway: iMessage stickers are a fun and creative way to add a personal touch to your messages. You can find stickers by downloading sticker apps or accessing the iMessage App Store, and you can customize stickers by resizing, layering, and viewing animations. You can manage your stickers by marking favorites, deleting packs, and organizing them into folders. Also, you can use stickers with Siri to send messages.
