With the anticipated release of Apple's iOS 10 software update, the tech brand is offering smartphone and tablet users the ability to utilize digital touch in their texting conversations for a much more personal and intuitive mobile interaction. The messaging feature will allow consumers to send messages in their own handwriting using digital touch. This will render conversations a bit more personable while maintaining the speed and efficiency of the mobile texting medium.
The messaging feature will be an extension of versions previously recognized on iOS platforms with such features as read receipts, bubble conversation blurbs and color coding to differentiate who is speaking. With iOS 10, users will be able to send handwritten messages by using their fingertips as a stylus as well as add automated tap and emoji-replaced words seamlessly into the conversation.
