The launch of iOS 10 at WWDC this summer turned out to be a pretty good deal for iOS developers and designers as it afforded them an opportunity to increase income by coming up with new features for iMessage which seemed to be the key focus of Apple.

The developers at Apple in lieu of this have come up with 4 new animated sticker packs which are available with the current iOS 10 beta. The release of these stickers can be marked as the first move by iOS developers to spruce up the existing messaging app with many more to come.
The already available sticker pack with the iOS 10 beta known as the Classic Mac sticker pack can now be deleted and reinstalled at will. In addition to this apple has come up with 3 new sticker packs which are focused on smileys, hearts and cards and shall offer companionship to the afore mentioned Classic Mac sticker pack.
These designs however aren’t very unique or original in addition to them not being exclusively designed for iMessage a fact that Apple will admit to. The designs have been taken from the Apple Watch platform where they also serve as animated emojis.
To use these new stickers you have to install them from the App Store after which you can access them via the new Message app drawer which is present at the bottom left corner of any conversation within your iPhone.
