Are you finding it difficult to edit messages on your iPhone? If so, you’re not alone. Many iPhone users struggle to figure out how to edit their messages, but the truth is that it can be quite simple. In this blog post, we’ll go over the steps involved in editing text messages on your iPhone, so that you don’t have to worry about making mistakes any longer.

The first step to editing a message on your iPhone is accessing the message. To do this, simply open up the Messages app and tap on the conversation containing the message you want to edit. Once you’ve opened up the conversation, long press (touch and hold) on the message bubble for a few seconds until a menu appears. You should see options such as “Copy” or “More…”. Tap “More…” and then tap on the arrow next to the message you want to edit.

Once you have selected the message, a new window will open with options at the bottom of your screen. Tap “Edit Message” and then make whatever changes you need to make in order to correct or update your message. When you are done making changes, simply tap “Send” at the bottom right-hand corner of your screen and your edited message will be delivered successfully!

It is important to note that there are some restrictions when it comes to editing messages on an iPhone: if more than 15 minutes have passed since sending your original message or if more than five edits have been made in total, then you won’t be able to edit your original message anymore. Additionally, if someone has already replied to your original text before it was edited, those replies may no longer appear in the conversation after editing has been completed.

We hope this blog post has provided helpful information about how one can easily edit text messages on their iPhone! With these simple steps outlined here, we hope that all of our readers will now feel confident in their ability to make corrections or updates quickly and easily without fear of making mistakes or sending incorrect messages!

This is a limitation of iOS 16, and it applies to all conversations in Messages.
