Cancel and edit iMessages in the new iOS 16, customize the lock screen and much more

The new iOS 16, introduced by Apple today at the start of the annual event for developers, WWDC, will allow you to cancel or edit an iMessage message after it has been sent. The news was announced by Craig Federighi, senior vice president of software engineering, who said it was one of the most requested features from Apple.

With editing, it will be possible to correct errors, for example, even after sending a message. But if the sender decides to “recall” the message, it is possible to cancel the send by pressing “Undo Send”. All the examples shown by Federighi refer to iMessages, messages sent through proprietary systems between Apple devices.

There is also a third new feature, which is to mark any group of messages as unread.

Another change in the next version of the operating system is the possibility to more fully customize the lock screen and add widgets to it.

“This is by far the biggest redesign of the locked screen, which redesigns what it looks like,” Federighi said. The user will be able to choose different fonts, colors and formats, depth of photographs, filters and styles for the time and day. Each personalized lock screen can have different widgets such as temperature, activity ring, calendar and more – what you can do with an Apple Watch screen.

“There’s plenty of room for customization with millions of combinations,” Federighi said. The photo library can suggest the best photos and there is a new library of background images, including one from Astronomy.
