The purpose is to keep friends or family members informed and reassured about the user’s safety.
Another attention-grabbing addition is the ‘catch-up arrow’, aimed at improving message navigation. This arrow symbol appears and guides users to the first unread message in a conversation, enhancing user experience. In addition, swiping right on any message now allows for a quick and effortless reply.
Searchability within iMessage has also seen an overhaul. Users can now combine multiple search filters, making it simpler to locate specific messages in an increasingly cluttered messaging environment.
