... to get rid of the ridiculous options for 'gentle' effect, etc?

I can't see anywhere to change this, and it's massively irritating!

Anyone? It's driving me nuts!

Dont understand what you mean at all OP!

Can you try and explain in more details what features you mean?

In ios10? Once you go in the text box don't they go away automatically?

It's really hard to explain! My iOS is up to date (10.1.1).

Sometimes it does this, sometimes it doesn't. I think it's when I text to someone else with an iPhone, as it doesn't seem to do it when I text DH, who has an android phone.

However, I've just tried texting DS's iPhone and it hasn't shown this 'feature' this time so that theory is shot!

Basically, when I write the text and press the 'send' button, it takes me to another screen, which asks which effect I want to send it with - loud, slam, invisible ink (why?!) or gentle. There appears to be no way not to choose one of these options.

Next time it comes up I'll take a screen shot

Your iPhone thinks your multi gesturing to enter that screen. Try softer, more preside touches and it shouldn't come up.

*you're. My iPhone thinks it can spell better than me, clearly...

That happens when you hold down the blue 'send' arrow. Just give it a quick tap to send and the option won't come up

Ah! Thank you very much. Will try that out
