iMessage has many advantages, but a little-known advantage is the choice of secret effect codes.

All you have to do is open a chat and then type “pew pew”.

You will notice that the screen is filled with lasers – both for you and for the recipient.

The trick was shared by the TikTok tech star @markdx_who regularly releases amazing iPhone hacks.

It earned a few hundred likes after impressing Apple fans.

There are some other codes you can try as well.

It rains confetti while sending the message “Congratulations”.

And the same works if you write “Congratulations” in another language as well.

When you type “Happy Birthday”, balloons will float across the screen.

And then there’s “Happy Chinese New Year,” unleashing virtual fireworks on iMessage.

One more thing…

That’s not the only iMessage trick you need to know.

After typing a message, you can tap and hold the blue send button to attach the following.

  • Eco – Fills the screen with message bubbles
  • Spotlight – Puts your message in the spotlight
  • Balloons – Balloons rise from the bottom of the screen
  • Confetti – It’s raining confetti
  • Love – Big heart bulges out from your message
  • Laser – Laser light show
  • Fireworks – Fireworks will explode on your screen
  • Shooting Star – A shooting star shoots across the screen
  • Celebration – A red firework appears

Remember: none of these effects will appear unless the recipient also has an iPhone.

And these effects are limited to iMessage only — so they don’t work on WhatsApp, Signal, or Facebook Messenger.
