Apple's shiny new operating system for mobile devices is just around the corner! If you are as excited as we are, it is worth knowing that iOS 10 is slated for release in September.

Buzzing with new features and functions, here's what you'll love and one thing you might hate.

1. LOVE: Messages revamp

iOS 10's messaging app is getting a total makeover, putting more expressive and personal control over your texts.

Apple knows everyone loves emojis (right? RIGHT?) so they are making them three times bigger! They are also easier to insert more than ever since they'll now be integrated into predictive texting. Now, you could practically compose full sentences purely with emojis and people won't just think it's cute ... it is necessary.

You could even write your own texts in your own handwriting and put your own personal flourish on your messages. Text messages in hard to read, angry cursive? Check.

How about applying expressive bubble effects, stickers and full screen animations to your texts? iOS 10 will let you do that. Slam your message bubbles loudly or virtually whisper them. Add fireworks to your celebratory messages or send kisses and balloons for birthdays. Pick the right sticker to express the perfect emotion. You could even send sketches or draw over your videos.

You want to add extra suspense and the element of surprise to your texts? iOS 10's invisible ink will hide your message until the recipient swipes to unveil it.
