Heat-of-the-moment messages, be gone!
It doesn’t matter how old you are, it’s safe to say we’ve all sent a heat-of-the moment text message. Perhaps yours was after a few wines, or maybe you accidentally sent a text to the wrong person.
Whatever it was, it’s an absolute nightmare. On popular messaging apps, like WhatsApp, the great thing is that you can unsend your message and act like it never happened.
iMessage, however, is a bit more cut throat. Once the text is gone, it’s gone. Until now that is people. Rumour has it that iOS 16 will have a fix for this, that’ll make things a whole lot less awkward for you.
Here’s everything we know.
Take it back.
We’ve heard a lot of rumours circulating the internet, surrounding iOS 16, with some describing it as Apple’s most ‘radical’ update to come yet.
As a part of the WWDC 2022 keynote, Apple announced that changes are coming to the Messages app – so this is from the horse’s mouth.
The three upcoming features are editing, undo and marking a conversation as unread. Not only will you be able to delete messages entirely, you’ll be able to ignore people freely – without them ever knowing.
Ignore might seem like a harsh word, what we mean is put a pin in a conversation until you’re ready to deal with it.
Another major update is the ability to edit the messages you send. We’ve all been at the hands of an unfortunate autocorrect mistake.
We don’t know what it is about autocorrect, but it always happens at the worst times. When we’re messaging professionals, appropriate words just switch up to change the entire context of your message.
This new feature is a game changer and will ensure your employment for that little bit longer – with regards to your messaging that is, may want to lay off the snoozing on your alarm still.
The wait is almost over.
iOS 16 will soon be available on your iPhone, and you’ll be able to take all of its epic new features for a spin.
You’ll need a swanky new iPhone to test them out on, and you’re in the right place. We’ve got a number of deals on the biggest and best from Apple, including the latest iPhone 13 and best-selling iPhone SE. Hey, we’ll even throw in free delivery.
