    Gary,
    Great ideas! Some I knew, but some I didn't , so very cool. One thing you might have also added is using swipe on the keyboard to type faster.

    Do all of these cool features work only iPhone to iPhone?

    Gene: some are for iMessages yes. But others like GIFs, the trackpad tip, etc, will work for any recipient.

    Tried the single period preceding a URL to avoid 'sending' a preview. Didn't work for me until I discovered/uncovered if I add a period immediately following the URL and preceding the URL the preview won't show just the link. Who knew?

    That was a great update & refresh of functions in the current iMessage App. Be good to Humans, Thanks!

    Can you explain how to delete attached photos in messages? When I try to delete them, they come right back within an hour or so. Must I delete them on all of my devices? This sounds backwards. Shouldnā€™t my devices keep track of my latest additions and deletions and synchronize that way?

    Ira: Deleting them should delete them. Not sure why they are coming back for you. You'll need to contact Apple Support to investigate.
