One of the newest features in Apple iOS 10 is the introduction of stickers. Instead of using one of the pre-installed emoji icons during your conversations, you can now send artist created digital stickers. These stickers can be added to a conversation, or even peeled and attached to speech bubbles already existing in a message. While they function similarly to emoji, in that help express emotion and add to the overall conversation, digital stickers bring this interaction to a whole new level.
Sticker packs are available in the iMessage App Store and are sold in bundles. So, users can download a new sticker pack and express themselves in a creative way that fits their unique style. Below is an example of a sticker pack by Kim Vervuurt, you can see the stickers in use as well as how they are presented in a pack. You can see these stickers displayed in the App Store here.
