Yesterday we wrote on the – seemingly – major issue of iMessages failing to send in iOS 7. Over the past week more and more users have taken to the Apple support community pages to voice their frustrations. Thankfully, there is an easy fix for the problem, one which we noted in our article yesterday. It basically just involves switching off iMessage and then resetting your network settings. It’s a very quick fix.
If you can’t be bothered to fix it yourself, that’s okay, Apple has confirmed that it knows of the issue and that it will be patched up by the next iOS 7 software update. Which is, allegedly, coming next week. The Wall Street Journal reports:
“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,” Apple said in a statement. “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.”
iOS 7.0.3 is very close to being released, and when it does land on iPhones across the globe, it will bring with it a fix to the iMessage woes.
