The other day we reported that there were some iOS users who were complaining of their iMessage woes, basically stating that the problem was that iMessages sometimes did not deliver, or sometimes it failed to send as a text message in instances where internet was not readily available. A temporary solution was found which was to reset the iPhone’s network settings, and to disable and re-enable iMessage. Granted this isn’t a solution that everyone will know about or know how to do themselves, but in any case Apple has since acknowledge that they are aware of the issue and are working on an update that will fix it.
According to Apple who made a statement to the Wall Street Journal, “We are aware of an issue that affects a fraction of a percent of our iMessage users, and we will have a fix available in an upcoming software update [...] In the meantime, we encourage any users having problems to reference our troubleshooting documents or contact AppleCare to help resolve their issue. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes impacted users.” As it stands there are other bugs that Apple needs to address, so hopefully all of this will be addressed in the company’s next update, presumably with the upcoming iOS 7.0.3 which has been pegged for a release next week.
