Folks using iOS 10 can now access the new iMessages App Store. The location went live just hours before iOS 10 is officially released to the public. One of the first titles is a familiar one.
Nintendo on Monday released the Super Mario Run Sticker pack for iMessage in iOS 10. The move comes just days after the company demoed the new Super Mario Run game for iOS at last week’s iPhone 7 event.
The sticker pack arrives just as Apple officially opened the iMessage app store in iOS 10.
If you have a beta version of iOS 10 already installed on your iOS device, you can install the sticker pack for free. Open the iMessage App Drawer, tap on the Store icon, and search for “Mario.”
Once installed, you can begin using the stickers in an iMessage thread with other iOS 10 users by tapping and holding on the image and dragging it up to the conversation.
The actual game Super Mario Run launches later this year on the App Store.
Choose your Mario
There are plenty of different Mario stickers available, Choose the one that best suits your mood and let the fun begin. The Super Mario Run Stickers pack is absolutely free on the iMessage App Store.
Like all iMessage stickers, you can add a Super Mario sticker to any text bubble within your message. Doing so makes your messages more fun and unique.
