How to unsend an iMessage

A guide to undo your imessage

If you have an iPhone, you’re definitely aware that it features a texting service called iMessage, which you can use to chat with others. It includes a built-in messaging app, but it also allows your pals to share and receive photographs and videos, which is really convenient!
