I sent my wife a message from an iPhone 7 to her iPhone 6S. Both are running iOS 10.2 (14C92), but when she received my message, she got:

(sent with celebration)

(sent with love)

... instead of getting the cool effects I thought I was sending her. She can see the new emoji that come with the update, but not the new effects.

  • Did it ever work?

Not sure what happened, but eventually it just started working. Perhaps there's a glitch in the release.
