  • With every iOS update, iPhone users get a new feature on their devices. Similarly, Apple has released the stable version of iOS 16 with a new feature on the iPhone where you can Unsend and Edit the Mail app.

What to know before using annular l’envoi des messages

Unsend message only works on the iOS 16 version. If you unsend a message to a user who is not using iOS16, the message will not be undone. It won’t be sent to your device, but the user on the other can still see the message. Additionally, you can use the unsend feature on messages sent to iPhone, iPad, and Mac.

Steps to cancel sending messages on iPhone:

  1. First, open on messages your device.
  2. Go to the desired chat and choose the message you want to Unsend.
  3. Long press on the message and you will get a small popup window with options like Undo Send, Edit, Copy, Reply etc. Select Undo Send. This unending feature is probably similar to deleting messages on WhatsApp.

By clicking on it, the message will be unsent to the user and deleted on both sides (including the recipient). But remember that you can only unsend messages within 2 minutes of the delivery time.

Tips! If you bought a new iPhone, you can restore your messages by transferring messages from the old iPhone to the new iPhone without iCloud.

Steps to Edit messages on iPhone

With Edit message you can edit messages already sent to a person.

  1. Launch the Message app, go to the chat of the desired person and long-press the message you want to edit.
  2. Click the Edit popup window.
  3. Edit the desired part in your message and press Send.

When you edit and send a message to someone, they will receive messages with an ‘ Edited ‘ note below the text. Both the sender and receiver can see the edited note in their chat.

You can edit a message within 15 minutes of delivery and up to 5 times.

Like the feature above, editing messages will only work for iOS 16 users. If you edited and sent a message to an iPhone user (using iOS16), they will receive two messages. First with the misspelt or erroneous message and then with the edited message.
