A lot of iPhone and iPad users were confused on Tuesday after installing iOS 10 on their devices. Not only did some users experience a brief issue while downloading iOS 10, but many could not access the new screen and bubble effects in the Messages app.
The main new features in iOS 10 are message effects. This includes the ability to send animated messages such as balloons or fireworks, the ability to add stickers to message bubbles and more. To send screen or bubble effects you must press and hold the new blue arrow that has replaced the Send button in the Messages app. Tapping and holding the arrow opens the "Send with effect" screen where you can select from a variety of animations to enhance you text messages. iOS users with the Reduce Motion slider enabled are not able to access this screen or see message animations.
