This makes it much more convenient for users who prefer not to have to manually open their messaging app every time they want to record an audio message.

Overall, recording and sending audio messages from an iPhone has never been easier – thanks largely in part to Apple’s new features with iOS 16 and higher software versions – making it possible for users around the world who rely on their phones for communication an even better experience!
