Edit messages you’ve already sent.
If you use iOS 16 new texting features and messaging tools like Slack, you’ve probably edited at least one — or 100 — of the messages you’ve sent. Whether you made a typo or your message contains false data, the editing feature is a fantastic way to make your corrections fast. iOS 16 new texting features, you’ll be able to edit your messages sent from your iPhone within 15 minutes.
How to edit a text message
To edit a text message, you’ll need to launch messages and go into any thread using iMessage, which you probably know as blue text. This feature will not work with SMS text messages (green texts). Now, press and keep your finger down on the message you expect to edit. It will get up the tap back responses and the quick action menu. Finally, tap Edit.
The text message will then become editable. You can delete the whole message, fix any mistakes, or add more text to it. Once completed, hit the blue checkmark button on the right side to save your edits. You can edit a single message up to 5 times with iOS 16 new texting features.
An actionable Edited button will appear under your edited text message. The person on the different end will even know that the message was edited. If they tap on Edited, all earlier versions of your text message will appear above the edited text message in just grayed-out chat bubbles.
Immediately recall any messages you accidentally sent
Accidental messages happen way too often. Maybe you tapped the send button when you pointed to choose an emoji. Or maybe you messaged the wrong person. At either point, you’ll be able to identify those messages with iOS 16. Unlike the edit message feature, you have 2 minutes to unsend a text.
How to unsend a text message?
To unsend a text message, find the Messages app, press and hold down on the message (blue text only) you like to unsend, and tap Undo Send.
The text message will vanish from your thread on both your end and the recipient. A message will appear on your line, stating that your message has been unsent but that the recipient may include already seen it.
Unfortunately, if the other person runs anything older than iOS 16, the message won’t be unsent even though your phone will say it is.
The recipient will see a gray text status message that displays, “[Name] unsent a message” if they’ve already viewed the text. This is like the Delete Message feature apps like WhatsApp and Signal already have, which even offer a similar message after we recall a text.
