Apple’s Mail app has gotten a range of new features with iOS 16. Some of the major ones are the option to Send Later, Remind Later, and even unsend email if you act quickly enough.

Unsend email with iPhone: How it works in iOS 16

Important: the unsend email option is only available for a very short window after hitting send

  1. Running iOS 16 on iPhone, open the Mail app
  2. Immediately after sending an email, look at the bottom of your screen
  3. Choose Undo Send – only available for 7-10 seconds after sending an email – but may depend on your internet connection
  4. You’ll see the email draft again, choose Cancel in the top left corner to unsend the email
  5. You can confirm the email was not sent by looking at your Sent folder – and it will be saved in your Drafts folder

Here’s how the process looks to unsend email with iPhone:

As mentioned above, you’ll only get the chance to unsend email if you catch it immediately after hitting the send button. In my early testing, the button disappeared after 7 seconds.
