Several words have secret animations attached to them. Think for example of “Merry Christmas” or “Congratulations”, but also “Happy New Year”, “Pew Bio” and “Eid Mubarak”. The Messages app on your iPhone isn’t the only app that can do this, but it’s still an easy way to staff a piece of text.

#4 Track flights on your iPhone

If you want to transmit and view flight information, you can also do that via the Messages app. All you have to do is enter the flight number and send it to a friend or family member. Then you and your friend or family member (with an iPhone) will see the flight information appear by pressing and holding the flight number.
