We’ve all been there at some point in time. You need to send an email out, go through and compose everything, hit Send, and then realize you sent it to the wrong person. This inevitably leads to an awkward conversation and situation where you need to send another email explaining the first one was an accident. All of this is because you couldn’t unsend email on iPhone using the built-in Mail app.

There are some third-party apps available on the App Store that include the ability to unsend emails on iPhone. But Apple is finally bringing some massive improvements to the Mail app that’s already pre-installed on your iPhone and iPad. With the release of iOS 16 and iPadOS 16, you can schedule emails to be sent, enjoy faster and smarter search results, be reminded to follow up on an email, and unsend emails.
How to Unsend Emails on iPhone
There’s really not much in the way of a new interface if you find yourself needing to unsend email on iPhone. Just like with if you need to unsend texts in the Messages app, there’s a short time frame that you have before the email is sent anyways. But unlike unsending messages, you have about than 10 seconds to unsend email or you’ll have to deal with a potentially awkward situation. Here’s how to unsend email on iPhone:
- Open the Mail app on your iPhone.
- Compose and send an email from your iPhone.
- As soon as you hit the Send button, look at the bottom of the screen.
- Tap the Undo Send button.
- Tap Cancel in the top left corner.
When you hit the Undo Send button, you’ll be taken back into the email draft. From here, it’s the same interface that you see when composing an email or accessing and editing a drafted email. Tapping the Cancel button will delete the email altogether. But you also have the ability to edit the body of the message, change the recipients, or you can always just send it anyways.
