To whom it may concern, iMessage is Apple’s stock instant messaging service built right into the messaging app. It enables you to send text, photo, video, sound and location quickly and easily to other users using iMessage on iPhone, iPad, Mac or Apple Watch. With iOS 10, Apple has taken iMessage to a whole new level with cool things such as bubble and screen effects, new Tapback emoji reactions, and especially Digital Touch and handwriting.
iMessage works alongside SMS and MMS, therefore, you can contact non-Apple users from the same app. iMessage in iOS 10 is expected to create a more fun messaging experience.
It must be stated that Messages is the most-used app on iPhone, as it does help you contact everyone else using iOS devices, Mac, and Apple Watch.
