The integration of Unicode 9 has also been taken to the next level from Unicode Consortium within iOS 10.2. Communication trend, there’s also a new full-screen messaging effect dubbed “Celebrate” built into the revamped Messages app. Add this to new settings within the Health experience, brand new TV app added, alongside new options in the Camera and Photos apps.
