Announcing a new iPhone operating system (iOS 10), Apple revealed that Messages is the most frequently used iOS app. It said that "iOS 10 brings the power of the App Store to Messages, opening up new opportunities for developers to create fun new ways for users to communicate in a thread, including stickers to be peeled and pasted into conversations, the ability to quickly personalise GIFs or edit photos, send payments or schedule dinner or a movie, all from within Messages." source: Apple statement
