Federighi announced that Apple is bringing three of the most highly-requested features to its Messages app, including the ability to edit and even retract messages after they’ve been sent!
With iOS 16, users will be able to edit any message they’ve just sent to correct embarrassing typos or other info or “Undo Send” to immediately recall a misfired message for up to 15 minutes after it’s been sent.
It’s not yet clear whether recipients will also need to be using iOS 16 for these features to work on other devices.
The Messages app in iOS 16 will also let you mark any thread as unread to help you avoid forgetting about messages that you didn’t get to immediately. You’ll also be able to recover deleted messages for up to 30 days.
