YOUR iPhone is packed with hidden games you never knew existed.
They’re hidden in the Messages app – but you’ve probably never noticed them.
Your iMessage app has many secrets, but iPhone Hidden Games is one of the best.
TikTok Gadget Genius @howfinity shared a clever hack that will forever change the way you use iMessage.
First, make sure you’re using the latest version of iOS by going to Settings > General > Software Update.
Then launch Messages — the app you usually use to send an iMessage — and start a chat with someone.
You should see a scroll bar above the keyboard with lots of icons.
Tapping the Apple App Store icon takes you to a dedicated iMessage-only store.
If you search for and install a free game called GamePigeon, you will get access to many games.
Better yet, you can play them with friends via iMessage.
Some of the games include mini golf, cup pong, line four and 20 questions.
The games are free to play, but the other chatter must have the same iMessage GamePigeon app installed.
That’s not the only iMessage trick, of course. Here are three more…
More iMessage tricks
The first is that you can reply to every single message with an emoji.
Just go to the selector and drag the emoji onto the text you want to reply to.
This works with Apple’s custom Memoji that look like you – and add extra character to your replies.
You can also unlock a hidden message menu that allows you to send text effects.
Just type a message and then press and hold the send button.
This brings up a special menu where you can animate the message.
But that’s not all.
You can also launch full screen effects for the recipient from this secret menu.
Go in and then select Screen at the top and you can flood the other person’s screen with emoji of your choice.
