    iMessage is the most common way to send texts and pictures on any of the iOS devices. But iMessage can do so much more than send basic text. It can convert temperature, weight, and more units. You just need to know the tricks.

    When you either send a message or get a message from an iPhone contact, there’s options you may not know about to get more information with just the press of a button.

    Having an easy option to convert units is great for when you’re communicating with friends and family who may have a different base language or country of origin. Think of how easy it would be to share tips on building a deck if you like in the U.S. and your contractor uncle lives in the U.K.
