APPLE’S upcoming iOS 16 may cause some technical errors for older iPhone models.

At its annual WWDC event last month, Apple revealed that iOS 16 will come with a slew of new features.

Several of those features are aimed at bettering the iMessage experience for users.

This includes the ability to edit, as well as take back a text after sending it – note this only works between iMessage users.

However, now a new report by 9to5mac claims that these two features might not work if the receiving party has an older iPhone.

So if you’re trying to edit or un-send an embarrassing message, you might be out of luck.

Which devices are affected?

Devices running iOS 15 and older are at risk of not working with the new tools.

Experts are 9to5mac explained: “Unfortunately, at least for now, Apple hasn’t figured out a way to delete messages from devices running iOS 15 or previous versions.”

“This means that even if you delete a message on a device running iOS 16, it will still be available to iMessage users who haven’t updated their devices to the latest version of the operating system.”

Apple appears to be tackling the bugs with iOS 16 beta 2, according to The Verge.

However, the publication also noted that the problem is “unlikely to persist long” as iOS 16 will soon be available for most Apple devices.

iPhone models going as far back as the 8 will have the ability to update their iOS to 16 once it’s released.

But that still means that anyone using a pre-2017 iPhone will not be able to use the new features.

A game-changer

For years, iPhone users have wanted a tool to recall text messages after sending them.

Just a few weeks ago, a thread highlighting the issue went viral on Twitter.

“Apple we need un-send for iMessage,” Twitter user @BigNeyogems said – the tweet garnered more than 100,000 likes.

Platforms like WhatsApp have long provided their users with such a feature.

And now, it finally seems that Apple has caught up with the technology.

Apple also announced a third clever tool for iMessage: The ability to mark text threads as ‘unread’ after opening them.
