Edit sent messages on iPhone 12, iPhone 13 and more

Apple rolled out iOS 16 to public beta last month and fans have reason to be super excited. The new software update comes with several exciting features and improvements. One of those features is editing sent messages that users have been waiting for a long time. It applies to iOS 16 compatible handsets like iPhone 11, iPhone 12, iPhone 13 and others. This new feature allows iOS 16 supported iPhone users to edit sent messages up to 15 minutes after they are sent. Keep in mind that the feature only works with iMessages, not text messages, so both the sender and recipient must have an iPhone to work effectively. Also, the participants must be running the latest iOS 16 version from Apple. The messages sent will have a small “edited” note underneath so that the person on the other end will know what the change was made when they tap the “Edited” text.


If you have downloaded the new iOS 16 public beta on your device, this way you can access this new feature to edit sent messages on iPhone.

Now add your edit and then hit the blue check to resubmit.

Before following the steps mentioned above, keep in mind that Apple has dropped the new software support from some of the older models. Only owners of iPhone 8 and above can access this feature as iPhone 7, iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone SE do not support the new iOS 16 update due to their hardware limitations.

Apart from this, users can also access photo editing tools, customizable lock screen, Apple Pay later and much more.
