What’s New in the Messages App

In this lesson for What’s New in iOS 12 on the iPhone, we look at what’s new in the Messages app including how we can show contacts photos and how we access photos in a new message.

Show Contacts Photos
The first change is you can now show your contact’s photo when looking at your messages. There is a setting for this in Settings>Messages. It’s on by default.

Accessing Photos in a New Message
Apple changed the way you access and add photos to a new message. In past version of iOS, you tapped on the Camera icon, now you need to go to the app tray and tap on the Photos icon. The camera icon just opens the camera. This change took me a while to get used to.
