The unsend or remove iMessage feature is still a work in progress. You can unsend or remove iMessages on iPhones running iOS 16, but the feature isn’t yet available for iPads or on the Mac. While a few users may already have it, you can expect the feature to be rolled out to all users in the coming months. For now, it’s a matter of convenience.
Having the most recent email or SMS message in your inbox is no fun, but you can at least feel better knowing your recipient can’t read the dreaded “do you want to chat” message. Luckily, Apple Mail has your back. It supports Gmail, Yahoo!Mail, AOL Mail, and Exchange, plus iCloud, if you’re willing to put your email on the cloud. If you don’t already use Apple Mail, you can download it for free.
As a side effect of being an email and text messaging juggernaut, Apple Mail is one of the most secure email platforms around. Besides, the company’s email client is built on the same platform as Facebook, so you’re not alone. In fact, Facebook messenger’s new unsend message feature is a welcome addition, especially for those who have been stung by unscrupulous messaging predators in the past.
The best part is that you can easily undo your latest mail smack dab in the middle of the night, if you’re so inclined. Even better, Apple Mail supports Exchange, so if your email server is on the fritz, you don’t have to worry about losing your emails. Plus, the app’s iOS counterpart is built to run on iCloud, so your emails will automatically sync across all of your other devices. Moreover, if you do lose your iPhone or iPad, your iCloud backup is not subject to deletion, so you don’t have to worry about having to retrieve your mail if you’re unable to.
Having a solid grasp of the features in your inbox is the key to successful email management. And if you need to go beyond the basic email and SMS features, you can download an app like Signal. This free messaging app is great for sending and receiving messages of all sizes, but the feature is best suited to those who are more concerned with privacy than social connections.

In the words of the old adage, you’ll only have one chance to make a first impression, so be sure to get the best possible impressions the first time.
