iMessage Warning for MILLIONS – check settings NOW or texting accident could leave you exposed | The Sun

APPLE has a surprise baked into the next generation of software for the iPhone.

iOS 16 will have a new iMessage feature that lets you alter or erase sent messages – don't get too comfortable or it'll cost you.

Apple introduced new hardware and software at their Worldwide Developers Conference in June 2022.

While much-warranted hype surrounds the new MacBook Pro, Apple-heads are also jazzed for iOS 16 and the new features it'll bring to the iPhone.

The new software will bring customizable lock screens, a nifty background remover tool, and erasable iMessages.

But not every exchange can be edited – when the time comes, make sure you're aware of new settings and parameters for messaging.

Only iMessages can be reworded up to 15 minutes after sending.

This means that users won't be able to take back a risky SMS message.

The default communication between two iPhone users is iMessage and it's powered by WiFi or a stable cellular connection.

But conversations between an iPhone user and an Android user – that's a different story.

iPhone-to-Android correspondences are sent by SMS, indicated by green chat bubbles.

These exchanges cannot be edited at all – what's sent is sent.

The same goes for users who have iMessage toggled off.

Double-check your settings to make sure you have iMessage activated – though it's the default, it could be deactivated by mistake.

Navigate to Settings, scroll to Messages, and toggle on iMessages by clicking the slide bar.
