iPhone fans have just noticed there's a secret way to send 'invisible' messages | The Sun

THERE'S a clever way you can keep your messages even more private on iPhone.

A TikToker has revealed the special trick, which could be useful when trying to avoid prying eyes.

Maybe you're sat next to someone nosey on the bus.

It's all to do with an Apple feature in iMessage.

And it's known as "invisible ink".

A special menu should now appear, which says "send with effect".

You'll see a few choices available but the one you want is called "invisible ink".

Tap it then hit the send button.

Now the recipient will receive the message with a hidden speckle effect on top of it.

As you may have noticed, there are other effects.

Slam makes the text stretch across the entire screen in the least discreet way.

Loud does a similar thing but not as big.

And Gentle makes the text appear smaller.

Along the top, there are some fun screen effects as well.

These are almost like old-school screensavers.
