How to unsend messages on iPhone

Apple's Messages app on the iPhone does not have a built-in feature for unsending or recalling messages once they have been sent. Once a message is sent, it cannot be undone or taken back within the Messages app.

If you've sent a message and wish to correct or retract it, your options are limited:

  1. Delete the Message Locally:

    • You can delete the message locally on your device by tapping and holding the message bubble, selecting "More," and then choosing "Delete." However, this only removes the message from your device, and the recipient will still see it.

  2. Ask Recipient to Delete:

    • If the message was sent to another iPhone user, you can ask them to delete the message on their end. Keep in mind that you don't have control over their device, and they may choose not to delete the message.

  3. Use a Third-Party App:

    • Some third-party messaging apps claim to offer message recall or unsend features. However, both the sender and recipient usually need to be using the same app for this to work, and it's not a foolproof solution.

Always be cautious when using third-party apps ensure that they are trustworthy and respect your privacy.

Apple may introduce new features or changes in subsequent iOS updates, so it's a good idea to check the latest iOS version and the Messages app for any new functionalities related to message recall
