Can someone see if you unsend a message on imessage?

Now that you can unsend a text message on iPhone, the question being asked is can someone see if you unsend a message on imessage.

If you mistakenly send a text message and unsend it, will the other person see or know that you unsend a text message on iMessage or iPhone, this is the question of the day and what we will be looking at.

Can someone see if you unsend a message on iMessage?

The straight answer is yes. Someone will see if you unsend a message on imessage because on the other person’s iMessage, it will show unsent a message. 

For example, you sent a text message to lizzy and realized that you shouldn’t supposed to send the text message to lizzy, you quickly unsend the text message. As long as lizzy received the sent text message from you, it will show Unsent a message.

Let’s say your name is Lucy, and that’s what lizzy used in saving your contact. It will show, Lucy unsent a message.

Once lizzy sees this on it’s iMessage conversation with you, this will indicate to lizzy that you sent an iMessage and unsend the text message. For me, there’s no big deal in this compared to when you cannot unsend an iMessage or sent text messages on iMessage.

When you delete an iMessage does the other person see it?

The answer is no. The other will never know if you delete an iMessage, but rather will know when you undo a sent text message or edited the text.

Since the introduction of ios 16 which let’s users undo a sent text message even when the recipient has received and opened the sent text message. Also the ability to edit a sent text message on iMessage.

However, there’s no feature that will let the other person know when you delete an iMessage except if you undo a text message on your iMessage or iPhone.

Once you tap on the Undo Send button, it will immediately delete the text message on your iMessage or your iPhone, and as well the recipient iPhone. But this will indicate or show Unsent text message on the recipient iMessage and the sender as well.

But to delete a text message on iMessage, the recipient or the other person will never know about it.

Again, since the release of ios 16 version, we have the Recently Deleted feature on iPhone.

Recently Deleted

This is like a trash bin on the android phone and I love the fact that Apple added it to ios 16. This means that if you delete a text message and be it iMessage or sms text message on your iPhone, it won’t be permanently deleted but rather will move into the Recently Deleted folder on your message app.

The temporary deleted text message will have a grace of 30 days to be in the folder until it will be permanently booted out from your phone.

I’m saying this for you to know that if you delete a text message on your iPhone, it will only be temporary deleted until you permanently get rid of the message from the recently deleted folder.

This is very lovely indeed just like the trash bin on google messages and I do hope that iPhone in general will have the trash bin for  files and not just for text messages.

Go ahead and tap on Undo Send and immediately it will get rid of the sent text message on your iMessage and as well as the recipient iMessage.

Also note that even if the recipient has read the text message, you can still undo it. However, I noticed that after three of the recipient reading the text message, you can’t undo or unsend the text message as you won’t see the option again.

So if you know that you made a mistake by sending a text message to someone on your iPhone, you only have three minutes to make the necessary changes else there’s nothing you can do about it.

Does the other person get notified when you unsend a message? 

The answer is yes. The other person will get notified when you unsend a message on iPhone or iMessage as on the recipient iMessage it will be displayed unsent a message.

If you delete a text message on iPhone it doesn’t delete for the other person except if you unsend the text message. Once you unsend a text message on iPhone, it will practically delete the text message both on the sender’s phone and the recipient phone.

Once again remember that this only work for iMessage as you cannot unsend an sms text message.

If you delete a text message on your iPhone, you only deleted the text message on your phone, but if you unsend a text on your iPhone, you have gotten rid of the text on your phone and the recipient’s. So if you want to get rid of a sent text message for you and for the other person, you will have to use the new ios 16 Undo Send feature and you’re good to go.

If you delete a message on iPhone, the other person will still see it but if you use the Undo send feature, the other won’t see the text message as it will be deleted from the recipient phone.

This is one of the best features of the ios 16 along with the option to edit a sent text message on iPhone.

iMessage is a lot better thanks to the ios 16 update that allows iMessage users to unsend a text message and also edit a sent text message. Aside from that, you now have the Recently Deleted feature in your message app and it works for both iMessage and SMS text message.

And this is where I wrap it on the question being asked, can someone see if you unsend a message on imessage. The simple answer is yes.
