My favorite feature in iOS 12: GIPHY support in iMessage

The new mobile operating system from Apple, iOS 12 for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, is out and it brings many great features with it. What I find particularly funny and practical with the daily use of the iPhone in connection with iOS 12: In addition to emojis and animojis, iMessage now also allows you to include animated GIF graphics from GIPHY in the conversation. Loyal readers of maybe already know GIPHY from one or the other post in which I use this service for animated, pictorial comments on the relevant topic;)

Use GIPHY's GIF animations in iMessage to reply? This is possible under iOS 12 on the iPhone and iPad!

Use iMessage with GIF images under iOS 12

In iMessage you can now not only use emojis and animojis, but also use a button to incorporate animated graphics from GIPHY. And what can I say: I love the feature! You can find funny animated GIFs for every topic and can easily integrate them into chats. I also find “Screen Time” very practical, but this GIPHY support was somehow unexpected. You easily forget that Apple worked on the new system for a year and made hundreds of other adjustments: D



Guides, manuals and more

What do you think of iOS 12? Do you prefer to use the "serious" improvements over iOS 11 or are you looking for the funny, small adjustments to the system and its apps?

Update 25.09.2018/XNUMX/XNUMX: # picture support gone again

I have to admit, I am a little confused. I explained to you today what a great feature this is, I just found out that the red magnifying glass symbol for the Giphy search suddenly disappeared in iMessage. Why? I dont know. I'll let you know when I've found out more! Maybe one can help Restart the iPhone X. Just take a look…
