Starting this fall, iPhone users will be able to edit and undo their sent messages. Apple CEO Tim Cook announced this at the annual press conference: WWDC keynote. The new app is part of iOS16, the latest update for iPhone devices, which also brings a lot of other novelties.
Good news for people who make an embarrassing misspelling, message the wrong person or react too enthusiastically to a message from their date. With iOS 16, the new software update for iPhones, later this year it will be possible to edit or undo messages you’ve sent.
With the new app, Apple has outdone Twitter, which is also toying with the idea of introducing an edit button. The post-editing feature was in high demand, and some iPhone users were excited.
Note: Only messages sent via iMessage can be edited and deleted. For messages on other chat apps or with non-iPhone users, it’s still a good idea to communicate with common sense. You can no longer change or retrieve your sent messages after fifteen minutes. And the function only works if the people you’re sending a message to also have iOS16 on their iPhone.
In addition to the new features of iMessage, Apple also introduced a lot of other changes at the Worldwide Developers Conference. For example, the iPhone lock screen gets a whole new look and there are more options for your notifications. For example, live notifications for a sports session for example will remain on the screen automatically. It will also be easier to share your photos with your family and with Apple Pay you can now pay in installments. Apple Maps will be expanding in our area and you will receive more details and the Fitness app will also receive an update.
The new MacBook Air and watchOS 9 operating system were also presented at the press conference.
