1. It’s here: iPhone users can now edit and send their texts. On Monday, Apple’s fall software update, iOS 16, became available for users to download. Insider reporter Katie Canales has tested the feature – and she’s convinced it’s one of Apple’s best software updates yet.

  • By holding down any text, you have the option to “Undo” or “Edit” your message.

  • However, if you communicate with someone who has not downloaded the update, they will receive two texts: the original and the edited version. If you retract a message, the recipient might still see the original message on devices that haven’t updated the software.

  • Keep in mind that the new features won’t work if you’re communicating with Android users and their green bubbles – adding even more fuel to the ongoing drama between Google and Apple.

  • Overall, though, Katie thought it was an exciting new feature in Apple’s toolbox — so much so that she said it might be the coolest thing the company has done in a long time.
