iOS 16 Users Can Edit and Unsend Sent Messages in iMessage

During the WWDC 2022 event, Apple announced many new features for its software platform. One of them is the function of editing messages that have been sent in the iMessage application.

Apple CEO Craig Federighi announced the feature while discussing the iOS 16 update. He also added that users will be able to unsend messages, and mark messages as unread so that users can return easily. Those are the three most requested features from iMessage users.

In a press release note to its event, Apple explains that the ability to edit or unsend messages will be available for 15 minutes, and once a message is deleted, users can recover it for up to 30 days.

Edited iMessages will be labeled with a special "Edited" next to their delivery status, so recipients know the message has been changed.
iMessage also integrates SharePlay directly, so users don't need to make FaceTime calls to share activities such as watching movies together.

Apple also updated the “Dictation” feature to help compose messages with the user's voice. So, users can now command and edit text with your finger at the same time. This feature is useful for quick corrections.

This new iMessage feature comes as part of iOS 16. However, it seems that both recipients and senders in iMessage need to be running iOS 16 to be able to take advantage of these new features.

The ability to edit and cancel sent messages has been around for a long time. With this feature, iMessage will level the playing field with other group chat apps like WhatsApp. It also means Apple has beaten Twitter in providing an edit button.

The announcement during WWDC 2022 follows many major changes for Apple. The company recently revealed it will be discontinuing its last iPod model. Apple made the announcement on its website, saying that the iPod touch no longer exists.(*)
