How to Add Digital Touch in iMessage in iOS 10 on iPhone and iPad

It would be really fun to add Digital Touch on top of your photo or video in iMessage on your iPhone/iPad powered by iOS 10.

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.
