Samsung One UI 5.0 is still months away from Galaxy users while Apple has already introduced iOS 16, the newest version of its operating system for iPhone users. It obviously brought many big changes and countless improvements to the previous version.
Among those, the one iOS 16 feature that I really appreciate is iMessage Edit Text. Not only this, but the Apple iMessage in iOS 16 is getting a lot better. It has SharePlay, undo sending messages entirely, and mark read conversations as unread features as well.
iMessage Edit Text feature
We all have those moments when we wished we could take back our words or correct embarrassing and silly typing spelling mistakes. Applications such as Telegram already have the ability to edit sent messages while WhatsApp and Twitter are working on it.
Beating these two big social media sites, Apple has released the edit text message feature to the iMessage. Similar to the Telegram, edited iMessages are indicated by an ‘Edited’ subtitle next to their delivery status, so the recipient knows the message has been changed.
iPhone users can edit or unsend a message up to 15 minutes after it is sent, or recover recently deleted messages for up to 30 days after it is deleted.
Samsung should bring Edit Text feature with One UI 5.0
We might see the first One UI 5.0 beta update sometime next month. The Android 13-based new custom OS will introduce multiple new features such as improved Material You, redesigned notification icons, easy QR code scanning, the ability to control smart home devices from lock screen, a new media output picker, and others.
Meanwhile, being a Samsung user who regularly makes silly typing mistakes, I want the edit text feature on the Samsung Messages app. This will be really helpful if you have accidentally said the wrong word to someone you realize later, made a spelling mistake while quick typing, or sent a wrong emoji.
What are your views on this? Do you also want the Edit Text feature with Samsung One UI 5.0 upgrade? Do let us know through the comments section.

One UI 5.1 will release for these Samsung Galaxy devices (Android 13)
After official Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 unveiling, Samsung has shifted its focus on the next-gen Galaxy S series, which will launch in the first quarter of next year. The Galaxy S23 series will debut with new hardware and software including Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and One UI 5.1, which will roll out for various devices.
In early August, Samsung started the Android 13 OS adaptation, bringing the One UI 5.0 version to the Galaxy devices. For the last two years, the company is following a strategy to bring the new Android OS first with x.0 and then deliver more new features with the x.1 iteration.
It’s expected that the South Korean tech giant could follow the same and bring additional features with the Android 13-based One UI 5.1 version. As Google has recently released Android 13, there’s a little pressure on the OEMs to start the distribution of the new OS to eligible devices.
Thanks to Samsung’s solid Android upgrades rollout strategy, we already have plenty of good idea over which Galaxy devices will be eligible for the next One UI 5.1 version update, based on Android 13. Compared to the One UI 5.0, the One UI 5.1 will bring additional features and improvements to the Galaxy devices.
Before heading to the list, it’s important to mention that the neither below-listed devices confirmed by Samsung, nor the One UI 5.1. However, you can assume it is the final list as all devices receiving the Android 13 OS will surely get the One UI 5.1 as well.

Samsung should bring back multi-user feature with One UI 5.1 [Android 13]
Multi-user! Have you heard about this feature? Although the name of this feature defines its function, yet if we tell about this feature then it allows you to switch between different user profiles. Samsung Galaxy device users also want to enjoy the multi user profiles feature in their device, perhaps the company can bring it with One UI 5.1 after ditching it in the upcoming One UI 5.0 beta.
With the Android 13-based One UI 5.0 beta update, the Korean tech giant has brought the multi-user profiles feature to the Galaxy S22 series of smartphones. Users who are currently testing One UI 5.0 on their smartphones can enjoy this feature.
Samsung Galaxy allows you to easily switch user profiles directly from the lock screen to make your device more secure, which means you don’t need to unlock your smartphone to switch profiles.
But these happy moments will be only for a short time as Samsung is going to remove the multi-user profiles feature in the next beta update. It’s not a rumor, it’s officially confirmed. At the end of September, the One UI beta Team announced on the Samsung Members app that the company will not bring multi-user support with a stable One UI 5.0 update.
Multi-user profiles feature is already available for tablets and Samsung Galaxy smartphones users also want it on their smartphones. The reason behind not bringing this feature to Galaxy smartphones is that the developers are facing several issues due to the multi-user feature.
Since this is a highly demanding feature, Samsung will not shy away from bringing this feature to its Galaxy smartphones and will find a solution soon.
As the beta team confirmed not to bring multi user feature with stable One UI 5.0, but following tradition Samsung will release One UI 5.1, and the company should bring back this feature in this major update.
