When Apple Watch arrived, the one feature that made quite a lot of buzz was Digital Touch. Sending heart or kiss was something that instantly caught everyone’s eyes. Personally, I felt a bit jealous as iPhone didn’t have it. However, I knew (deep down) that it’s going to come sooner than later on iPhone as well.
Among several hot features that Messages app showcases in iOS 10 is Digital Touch. It can inject plenty of fun into iMessaging.
Better still, you can add Digital Touch even on your photo or video. It would be really cool to give this functionality a try. Let’s check out!
How to Add Digital Touch on top of Photo/Video in iMessage on iOS 10
Step #1. Launch Messages app on your iPhone → Tap on the show more button (>) to the left of the iMessage text field.
Step #2. Next, you need to tap on the Digital Touch button which looks like a heart with touch fingers on it.
Step #3. Next up, tap on the Camera button at the bottom left.
(Alternately, you have the option to expand the screen. To do so, tap on the Expand Canvas button (^) from the bottom right. Then, tap on camera icon located at the bottom left.)
Step #4. If you want to switch between rear and selfie camera, tap on the Camera Switch button at the bottom right.
Step #5. Tap on the white Camera Shutter button at the bottom left to capture a still photo or the red Video Shutter button at the bottom center to record a video of up to 10 seconds.
Step #6. Up next, you can swipe your finger to Sketch, touch and hold two fingers to add a Heartbeat.
Step #7. Once you are done, Tap on Send button.
Indeed, Digital Touch is fun to use in iMessage. It’s yet another feature which has been taken from Apple Watch.
