Ever since iOS 7 was released last month, quite a number of users have been experiencing some issues with Apple’s iMessage service. The company in a statement to Wall Street Journal acknowledged that it would be releasing an update that would resolve the problems with iMessage.
“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 our upcoming software update,” Apple said. “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.”
According to several posts on Apple support communities affected users are not able to send any messages but are able to receive them, though majority of the users haven’t faced any issues on their iPhone after updating to iOS 7. Some users do offer a solution that siging off or rebooting the device can solve the problem which is still not successful to many users.
Evidence suggests that Apple is internally testing iOS 7 update at server logs and the statement ensures that Apple would fix the iMessage problem in the latest update. If the logs are found genuine, there would be a third minor update after iOS 7.0.1 software which was released only for the IPhone 5C and 5S. Some lock-screen bugs were fixed in the second 7.0.2 update. However we wait eagerly for the official release from Apple of the latest iOS 7 update to fix this problem.
