    Maybe it's a European/Netherlands problem? iPhone ownership is bigger in Asia than even the US.

    Oh man, the lock sound sounds pretty terrible. Whoever made the Forstall comment, it does not feel far from the truth.

    Over here SMS cost roughly 1.5 USD for every thousand messages sent.

    I'm not 100% sure about that, but the Dock's translucency effect seems to have been tweaked.

    Is predictive emoji back? There was a time during the first few betas where if you typed something like "basketball", it would show a basketball where it normally predicts what you are typing. It has since disappeared but I thought it was a nice feature at the time.

    How do you unlock now? I use swipe to unlock quite often. I know I can use my fingerprints but I do a lot of working with my hands and get a lot of scrapes and often have bandages.

    Yay! One of my favourite parts of the week. Things were very stable in beta 4 so I can imagine it's only getting better, hopefully more battery life improvements!

    I scratch my head about that. I use Messages to talk to people who have Android via SMS.

    It's kind of funny for some of you to argue that Apple doesn't need to make iMessage good just because everyone else use whatsapp/fb messenger.

    There is absolutely no reason why multiple messaging platforms cannot co-exist. The majority of the iPhone and even Android users around here use at least 3 messaging apps on a daily basis - FB messenger, Whatsapp, Line and of course iMessage among iPhone-using friends who look down on Android users.

    Interesting. So do they still charge for SMS in Europe? I haven't seen a metered SMS plan in the US in years.

    Is 3.0 USB audio supported ? Read in SOS article that current OS X does not. Want to purchase audio interface with 3.0 USB to DAW.

    It's only a matter of months and whatsapp will do the same as the to be introduced iMessage. Facebook owns whatsapp. Don't get me wrong. I do like iMessage. But if iMessage can't cummunicate with my friends I've to use alternatives. Whatsapp does a lot more then iMessage. You can make group chats and is faster with sending files then iMessage too.

    I'm hoping the lock screen messages bug is fixed (the window would open but wouldn't load message).

    Also, I opened a message on the lock screen to reply... and my Gboard showed up. 0_o

    Come on, one of the biggest features of iOS 10 is to "work properly" with their battery case? Come on, Apple isn't even trying to innovate anymore, just fixing **** up. You can't tell me that one of the last 4 patches of iOS 9 couldn't make it work with their own battery case?

    Also I am tired of "app changes" being lumped into an OS update. Apps are apps, OS'es are OS'es. ALL Apple's apps should be stand alone and updated through the app store and not shoehorned into the OS kernel. I mean Microsoft was given **** over the years for making their IE and Office and other "built-in" products work tightly with Windows OS kernel, achieving performance levels and stability that 3rd parties couldn't achieve using standard API's and SDK's, why should developers tolerate that you need a whole new iOS version to get improve Photo app or emoji support, neither should you have to wait 5 iOS versions to get the same features and performance Apple's own apps take advantage of today.

    Patching/fixing/improving apps is not a reason to release a new OS.

    WhatsApp is crap.
    "Let me reply on my iPad..."wait...let me reply on the web..."i have to do what?!"
    WhatsApp users are not the target audience for iMessage...

    I encourage everyone to use telegram, if they insist on something besides iMessage.

    Certainly not in Denmark. Most people I know have iPhones and I use iMessage with those. If they don't have iPhones iMessage will send them a text which is included for free in all subscriptions here.

    I only use WhatsApp for people from other countries where it apparently is popular? I don't really see why - the app is not very aesthetically appeling. In fact its damn ugly.

    Stop assuming that because something is like this and this where you live that it is universal.

    And why can't Apple update iMessage while you still use WhatsApp?
    No they're not. There are many countries where Apple has a lot more than a 10% market share.

    But I don't see why you have a problem with Apple updating iMessages just because you don't use it.

    Why don't you just turn off Keyboard sounds in settings? I have since my first iPhone 3G because that click click click click sound while typing drove me nuts.

    People will find a way to complain I tell you, it's like they didn't put in an ounce of thought before typing. I visit these threads to be entertained once in a while.
