Not all Apple projects are doomed to success. But if some still remain prototypes, which also worked on them, engineers will never know anyone else still manages to see the light and even seem to get the approval of users. Unfortunately, even the initial recognition of a brand is not a guarantee that it will always be. A living example of messenger iMessage, which seemed pretty promising social platform, while Apple did not begin systematically to drown the introduction of useless features while ignoring real demand. And, apparently, in Cupertino intend to go ahead with this.
Apple intends to continue to develop iMessage, expanding its functions, one of which can be the ability to schedule messages. About Craig Federighi, Vice President of development, wrote in a letter to someone who asked him this question.
How to schedule a message in iMessage
According to a top Manager in Cupertino look to the planning functions of messages, but has not made a final decision on its implementation. The fact is, said Federighi, this innovation entails a number of difficulties, both for developers and for the users themselves.

First, you need to visualize your scheduled posts, because they must differ in appearance from those already sent. Secondly, it is necessary to study the mechanism of editing these messages so that users are able to modify their contents. Well, and thirdly, you should consider how to avoid confusion between the two. The fact that the administration of the scheduled message may create the impression that the sender is willing to continue the conversation, whereas in fact he is out of reach at all desire can not answer.
Edit and delete messages in iMessage
However, Federighi said that the planning function will never appear in iMessage. Thanks to her own messenger Apple can be a more convenient means for business correspondence, which is most often used scheduled posts. Therefore it would be logical if Apple will add this innovation only in the business version of iMessage and open access to ordinary users, so they do not hit each other confused.

At the same time, it seems strange that Apple even cares about a possible misunderstanding between users, but for some reason still have not added in the iMessage mechanism to edit and delete already sent messages. This may be a limitation due to the fact that the service is integrated with the SMS system, but I personally do not believe that in Cupertino are unable to figure out how to work around it elegantly. It seems that the company really has no case to his messenger, since she engaged in such nonsense.
