New Delhi. Apple is going to add a message filter on iOS 16 for its users using two SIMs on the iPhone. The new feature will filter the messages received in two different categories on the basis of SIM. The tech giant is also reportedly trying to improve the edit feature for iMessage on iOS 16. Since the edit feature is not available on previous iOS variants, changes to the message were not visible to users running iOS 15 or earlier.
Currently, iPhone maker company Apple is working on adding a new filter to categorize the messages received by dual SIM users. This filter is part of the new iOS 16 operating system, which is currently in its second beta phase. As of beta 2 iOS16, Apple will now allow customers using iPhone dual SIM to filter their messages based on SIM. The new feature will be available for both iMessages and SMS service and will filter messages based on SIM.
Trying to fix edit feature
According to a report by 9To5Mac, Apple is also trying to fix the edit feature for text on iMessage for iOS 16. Currently the edit feature is not backward compatible and hence edited messages are not visible to users of iOS 15 or older.

New way to show messages
Apple has reportedly figured out a way to show edit messages. These edit messages now appear with the label ‘Edit for’ on iPhones running earlier versions of iOS. Although it does not replace the previous message, it is better than not showing the edit message at all. Unfortunately, Apple still hasn’t figured out a way to successfully integrate the unsend messages feature on iOS 16 with older versions of iOS, the report said.
Apple will also introduce filter extension
During its WWDC 2022 keynote, Apple introduced the new iOS 16 operating system. Recently, Apple is reportedly also going to introduce filter extension for messages in 12 sub-categories within Transactions and Promotions on iOS 16.
