• IOS 16's editable Messages likely won't work great with older versions of iOS

    5 days ago - By MobileSyrup

    It seems editing sent messages with iMessage - one of iOS 16's marquee features - might not work well when interacting with someone running an older version of Apple's mobile operating system .
    According to 9to5Mac , in Apple's second iOS 16 beta, anyone running an older version of the OS will receive the edited text after the original message, along with the words "Edited to." Though this workaround makes sense, it defeats the purpose of editing a text in the first place.
