Typing Gif – This iMessage Prank Got me for Real

Now that the iMessage protocol supports animated gifs, you can play an incredibly stupid prank on your friends by sending them this amusing animated image or Gif of the infamous “typing” animation. That plays when the person on the other end of an iMessage conversation is in the midst of a reply.

All you need to do is send someone a message or two that suggests a juicy reply is coming.. Then copy and paste the animated gif below of the ‘typing’ indicator. That loops continuously and sends that instead of another message:

Earlier this week, my friend played a really good prank on me. As I received a message from him, I opened up the Message application and could not see anything but a typing indicator. So I waited patiently for my friend to finish typing, figuring that Messages were having yet some other issues. That could have explained why I received an alert, yet did not see any message.

Long story short, my friend got me pretty good. And here is how you can also prank this typing gif to your friends too…

As you may have figured out by now, that the prank consists of using an animated gif. That mimics the typing indicator of iOS.
