iOS 16 and macOS 13 Ventura introduce a new Undo Send feature in the Mail app that allows users to unsend their emails. Since email is an open protocol and Apple doesn’t control it, you cannot exactly unsend an email. Like all the other email apps, the Mail app now delays sending an email that allows you to unsend an email before it’s sent. By default, the Undo Send feature has a delay of 10 seconds, but you can increase it up to 30 seconds. Here is how to increase Undo Send delay time on iPhone and Mac.
