Apple iOS 16 is letting users edit iMessages five times, and once a user reaches the limit, the edit option from the long-press menu on the device will disappear from the menu once it reaches the limit.

The iOS 16 update will allow users to edit an iMessage up to five times, and once they reach the limit, the edit option will disappear from the long-press menu when editing an iMessage.

As with previous releases of iOS, you could unsend a message for 15 minutes after you sent it when using previous versions of the OS.

As a result of the most recent update to the program, the time limit has been significantly shortened to two minutes and has been shortened as much as possible.

The addition of each edit will be logged and will be visible both to the sender and to the recipient of the iMessage in the future, reports 9to5Mac.

'The person you are messaging will be able to view any edits that you have made, so if you make any edits, they will see them as well,' the report said late Wednesday evening.

When you tap on the 'Edited' text that sits below an edited message, you will see a list of all the edits that have been made before the recent one, and you will be able to see them all listed above the present one.

As part of iOS 16, Apple has released the third beta, which shows that there will be a change that will allow users to edit and unsend messages and will be released as part of iOS 16.

As part of iOS 16's new features, there is now a redesigned Lock Screen that supports widgets as well as additional customization, and a new installment plan for Apple Pay, which allows users to pay over time.

A new feature on the Lock Screen, Live Activity, allows users to stay on top of things happening in real-time, such as sports games, workouts, rides, and food deliveries.

A new feature called SharePlay has been added to Messages, allowing users to enjoy synced content like movies or music on their phones and share playback controls over messaging while they are chatting.
