Apple releases big software updates every year to help keep the iPhone fresh. And, unlike Google’s Android, it’s available for all supported devices at the same time.
- Edit and unsend iMessages. Users can edit or unsend a message in iMessage within 15 minutes after sending it. The other user will be able to see that the message has been edited or removed.
- Schedule emails ahead of time. The built-in Mail app on iPhones will allow users to schedule emails to send later. It also has a new, more functional search feature that Apple says offers “more accurate and complete results.” It also has a new undo send option.
- Better group texting with Android users. Android users will finally see the Tapback reactions from iMessage users, like laughs, hearts and more, inside text chains. That means you won’t get the reactions sent as separate messages. It should be a huge improvement for iPhone users who text with Android users.
- Smarter Dictation. Smarter Dictation lets you speak texts and automatically punctuates them with commas, periods, question marks and even emoji — say something like “happy face emoji” and it’ll get added.
