    I live in the US and only use iMessage, have never touched WhatsApp. Stop assuming you know me :) I was basing my opinion on observation travelling abroad, was not hostile at all. Calm down.

    Find new friends ;). It's restricted to the people you know really, because I live in the Netherlands, and there's only one person in my extended family (my own and in-laws) that doesn't own an iPhone. Most of my friends have an iPhone as well. I primarily use iMessage.

    You have to hard press down on the Home button. When it fails to identify your fingerprint, it brings up the Passcode screen. It's not that much different, but annoying to me as like I said, swiping to unlock is muscle memory after it being this way since the original iPhone.

    Maybe I wrote my reply wrong. I do like iMessage and I'm very happy Apple is updating it and putting effort in it. For me it's just not that usefull. When it would communicate with other messenger apps who are the standard over here (whatsapp) I would use iMessage as my primary messenger app. This is not the case so I'm forced using whatsapp. But luckily for you it is :)

    A few changes I've noticed in Beta 5 (iPhone 6S) so far:

    - Animations are significantly faster.
    • Returning to the home screen feels almost impossibly fast. So fast that it seems like the return-to-home animation begins before the home button click has completed.
    • Tapping to zoom into folders has also seen a serious speed-up.

    - Swipe down from Widgets screen to Search
    • Not sure if this is new as of Beta 5, but I just noticed you can swipe down when in the Widgets screen to activate Spotlight, both in Notifications Center, lock screen, and from the home screen.
    - Messages: small tweaks
    • Also not sure if this is new, but you can swipe to cycle between sticker packs/iMessage apps horizontally.
    • When your contact does not have a photo assigned to them: the circle depicting their initials has seen the gradient and outlining notably toned down.

    It's never left, for most of us.

    My argument wasn't that iMessages is more or less popular, just that it isn't a few people using. If you want to text on an iPhone without downloading an app and having your friend download an app, then you use iMessages, which is cross platform messenger, as it uses SMS. You won't get all the cool stuff but it is a cross platform messenger.

    GM will be released the day of the iPhone keynote, like it's been for almost 10 years.

    Probably not the place to ask this, but how do you get the emoji suggestions? I'm on public beta 3 and it doesn't work no matter what app I am in, including messages

    Am I the only one that disables keyboard sounds? Who wants to hear it all day? I hate the fact I am hearing my physical keyboard clatter as I type this on my computer...

    About 200,000 iMessage are sent per second. It's pretty well used by people!

    It's not working for some people in some of the betas. It worked for me in the first beta (and maybe the second - I can't remember), and hasn't worked since then. Perhaps a clean install will help? I am installing beta 5 now and will report back whether it fixed the issue for me.

    I know, how about we leave all the "which messaging app is more popular" arguments for say...an iMessage/messaging thread.... Let's stay on point, this is about iOS betas.

    Or more importantly, was it fixed?

    Where is it that working properly with battery cases comes up as one of the biggest iOS 10 features?

    How stable is this release? Most apps working on it? Hesitant to try the public beta....

    Background animations and bubble effects? Well f**** me over the innovative fireworks Cupertino sells as USP's nowadays.

    ICQ had those in the late nineties. And it slowly died. And that was a good thing.

    People will need to run it for a little while to see how stable it is.
    I believe a lot of people disable the sounds, while a lot of people don't.
    I miss ICQ (and for some reason reason can't forget my ICQ number to this day, even though I haven't used it in years and years, and only think about it once in a rare while).

    That functionality has been present since the first beta, just having been rebranded as "Play Later"

    The lock screen messages bug has been fixed for me on an iPhone 6s Plus.
