iOS 16 comes with some major upgrades that will change how you use your iPhone. Here are some of the most notable features:
Unsend and edit messages
Users can now unsend a message up to 2 minutes after sending it and edit it up to 15 minutes after sending it, according to Apple. You can edit a message up to five times and recipients can see a record of those edits.
To edit or unsend a message, simply hold down on a blue message bubble and select the action on the menu that appears.

According to Apple, Safety Check “helps people in domestic or intimate partner violence situations review and reset the access they’ve granted others.” The new feature resets system privacy permissions and “restricts Messages and FaceTime to the device on hand.”
The improved dictation allows users to type and make edits all while dictating.
