Apple releases 4 animated sticker packs for iOS 10 Messages

“One of iOS 10’s cool new features is the ability for developers to create sticker pack animated emojis for iMessage using the Messages API,” Seth Weintraub reports for 9to5Mac. “Apple is showing how it is done, so to speak.”

“Apple last night released 4 apps for iOS 10 beta testers, most of which will look familiar to Apple Watch users,” Weintraub reports. “The Classic Mac sticker packs, originally designed by Susan Kare in the 80s was included with iOS 10 but is now there if you’ve uninstalled and want to reinstall.”

Here are the downloads for iOS 10 users:
• Classic Mac
• Smileys
• Hearts
• Hands”

See the photos and links to the downloads here.

MacDailyNews Take: Here we go!

Our Messages app is going to look like an early 80s NYC subway car.


  1. I am glad to see that Apple is leading in technology and computer programming, yet again. No doubt, this great leap in systems development was years in the making. I am thrilled that this coding masterpiece was kept secret for so long. All hail the Apple Skunk Works. Wait, no, let’s call it the Manhatten Project.

  2. As long as I don’t get sent a sticker that I have to pay for to see, I’ll be happy.

    I can just imagine the likes of Kardashian, West et al plotting already to bring out a giant ass sticker.
