    So my friend has a iPhone 5s and he is able to send iMessages with bubble and screen effects that show up when he sends them on his phone. However if someone sends him the effects he'll get a message like "(sent with lasers)." His motion reduce option is also off and he has tried restarting his phone with no luck. Does anyone know of a fix for this problem?

    Both devices on the same build? (IE developer beta 7 or public beta 6)

    Maybe toggle reduce motion on then back off. Seems there have been several weird issues that don't seem to work until the switch for that option is toggled for some reason. Also a reset all settings could quite possibly resolve it.

    What worked for me was to force quit iMessages, go into settings and turn off iMessages, soft reboot and re-enable iMessages again.

    Doesn't seem to work with reduce motion enabled, which I find a strange to link it with that setting.

    Not the least bit strange, this is the purpose of the Reduce Motion feature.

    The purpose is not "speed up iOS animations" which some people think they are supposed to use it for. People that use Reduce Motion for its intended purpose are cutting down any and all effects that may cause motion sickness, vertigo, seizure, or other. The crazy Message effects fall well within that category.

    I guess I don't find these animations as bad as the zooming in and out of apps and folders, although that has been improved significantly in iOS 10 to where I don't mind it anymore.

    I can confirm that it's an intended behavior. I had reduce motion turned on and I wasn't able to see any animations or effects in iMessage for the last 2-3 betas. It's not a bug.

    Again, the Reduce Motion feature is not a toggle for I Like The Animations / I Don't Like The Animations.

    It is for people physically affected by the motion.

    Then I guess those people can't watch movies or tv either

    Forget movies and TV, some of them even feel like their falling just from walking around.
