Apple is getting ready to roll out a new update for the iPhone and it includes a feature many of us will appreciate. How many times have you sent a text only to regret it moments later? That sinking feeling will soon be a thing of the past.
According to Thrillist, Apple iPhone users will be able to unsend text messages after they’ve hit send. But there’s a condition in the fine print: “Users can edit or recall a message for up to 15 minutes after sending it, or recover recently deleted messages for up to 30 days after deletion.” In other words, don’t wait too long.
In addition to the iMessage update, Apple is adding other long awaited features, too. For instance, you’ll soon be able to customize your lock screen with new photo features, widget options, and different color options for the date and time.
All of these features are part of the new iOS 16 announced by Apple CEO Tim Cook at the the company’s Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose, California. If you have an iPhone 8 or later, you’ll be able to get the operating system update in the coming months. Not soon enough for impulsive texters. You can learn more about what iOS 16 will offer HERE.
