Can you unsend a message on iMessage? Viral iPhone trick could save you but only in very specific situation

LOTS of iPhone users regularly ask for an 'unsend button' for iMessage, but Apple hasn't provided one so far.

The feature is available on WhatsApp within a certain timeframe but some iPhone users think they've found a workaround for iMessage too.

According to GottaBeMobile, you can unsend a risky or accidental Apple iMessage if you're really quick.

The tech site claims that you need to immediately swipe down from the top right corner of your iPhone.

Then, it says you need to switch on Airplane mode immediately so the iMessage won't send.

If an iMessage doesn't deliver you should see a small “Not Delivered” message pop up underneath it.

You can hold down on an undelivered message and click "More".

Then, select the trash icon to delete it.

You have to delete an undelivered iMessage or it could send as soon as your iPhone has signal again.

The only problem with this supposed unsend iMessage trick is that it's almost not humanly possible to switch Airplane mode on in time for the message not to send.
